[From MS. Records in Office of Secretary of State.]


I took the liberty of informing you by Col. Lamb from Halifax that the Assembly had referred my Claim for the Goods Seised here once more to your Excellency and Council, that they thought my requisition of being reinstated, with so much as I had paid for the goods for the value of the Tobacco, now reasonable but that they thought this matter should be finished as at first referred by them. I flatter myself that your Excellency will think the same and give orders for payment. The want of the use of the sums which I have been kept put off on public account have been very hurtful to me, and I am now in want of what funds I can Collect, in Consequence of some Purchases which I have made. I hope you will think it reasonable to make some allowance for the expences which have attended the sending from time to get this Claim adjusted.

I am, with the Greatest Respect,
Your Excellency's most obedient & most humble Servant,
