Duplin July 8th 1778.


I am informed there was an act passed at the last General Assembly to empower Clerks of the County Courts to issue Certificates of License for Marriage and that License does not issue from the Secretary's office, and as I have not seen the Laws, I am entirely ignorant how to proceed in respect of the form or the State Fees, I would therefore beg the favor of your instruction, and if there is any particular form to be used in making out certificates of License, I would be much obliged to you for a Copy of the form. I am Sir, with all due esteem

Your mo. Ob. huml. Servt.

P. S. I here enclose the fees for two administration Blanks, which please send by the Bearer and oblige.
