Edenton 19th Novr 1778.

Dear Sir:

I have returned you a bond for a letter of Marque for Capt. Cunningham, which your Excellency was so polite as to trust me with. I must take a further trial of your faith, and request one other Blank for Capt. Cheshire whom we have put into a new Boat of ours, a Rigged Brig named The Lord Chatham. The Bond shall be executed and returned in less time than the last was. Should you say so it shall go by express.

I have the honor to be with every sentiment friendship can inspire Dr. Sir,
Your very ob. & Mo. Huml. Servt.
