[From Executive Letter Book.]

Mecklenburg County, Sept. 4th, 1777.


These are to inform you that the public do suffer in the western parts of this State, by want of the last acts of the Assembly: at least we in this County are at a loss in many respects having as yet had none of them sent to us, except the tax-act, a few days ago in manuscript, sent to us by Mr. Avery: and a copy of the Tory Act, by unknown hands; but whether genuine or not we can not tell. Wherefore I make bold to apply to you, as our political Father, that you would give such orders in the premises, as you shall think proper. And in the mean time please to send me one copy of the Acts, if to be had; and so doing you will oblige the public, and your Humble servant in particular.
