1st Sept. 1778.

These are to certify that John London applied to us the subscribers two Justices of the Peace for the County of New Hanover in the State of North Carolina, and requested to be admitted to take the Oath of Allegiance to this State as by law prescribed, but we having a doubt as to the legality of the same, as the said John London is here on his Parol, under the confiscation act, refused to administer the said Oath, and at the same time do certify the said John London's willingness to take the same.

Given under our hands 1st Sept. 1778.
A true Copy, John London.
