Guilford Febry 1st 1778.

Dear Sir:

This moment the Bearer Mr. Lomax having informed me he was going to express to New Bern for the Court Law Bill, and also to call upon your Excellency for the Commissioners of the peace for the additional number of men recommended at the last Assembly to be added or commissioned as your Excellency may think proper, to the former number heretofore commissioned should your Excellency have them made out, I should take it as a particular favor your sending them, as our Court begins the 16th of this Inst, and the members to be added likely may then give their attendence. Your compliance with this will much oblige your Excellency's very humble servant.
