[From Executive Letter Book.]

Anson, 29th Oct. 1777.


Enclosed I send your Excellency the Bond of John Smith, who complied with your directions, and at Lowry when I wrote you I indulged him to stay at home, till the Express sent you, returned. Ever since which time he has remained so ill, that he has not been able to come to this place, to give Bail and take the oath, now should he be able, I shall send him down during the sitting of the Session. I propose being down during the sitting of the Assembly if health permits.

I am Sir your most huml Servt,

N. B. The answer to the Court's letter, your Excellency will direct to the Chairman, as I am now sitting off a journey.
