Letter from Elisha Battle to North Carolina Council of Safety.

Edgecombe, In Committee, August 16th 1776.


We have try'd David Smith for passing Counterfeit money, but not proof sufficient appearing to committ him; have therefore agreeable to the advice of Mr Rand, sent him to you for further examination.

The inclosed bill of five dollars is the money on which the said Smith was convicted & has sworn that he received the same of a certain David Craig of Salisberry.
