Apl. 7th., 1782.


I am Disappointed in a Waggon that I Proposed Geting to Send in the furniture, having none of my own. One of the beds Mrs. Mallett took with her to Cross Creek, one bed & Matress is here. The Blankets were Distributed among the Negroes Last fall. The bedstead at Mr. Estes can be had; I find it not so good as I Expected, or is there any good one, Except the field bedstead. The Sheets and Counterpanes were taken to Cross Creek; the whole of the Chiney Consisted of a Tea Table Set & two punch Bowls, which are mostly Broke. Have sent half Dozen Coffee Cups with Mrs. Munford; will beg to have returned, if agreeable, having none of the kind. If any thing in my House will be wanted Dureing the Sitting of the Assembly, it will be much at your Service. All are ready to be Delivered, if a waggon could be procured.

This will accompany a Letter I intended to have waited on you with yesterday, but was prevented by Rain in the Morning.

I am your Excellency’s Most Obedient Servant,
To His Excellency Govr. Burke, Esq.
