[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kinston, 26th September, 1785.

Dear Sir:

I have been repeatedly requested by Congress to prevail on the Delegates of this State to attend, none of whom, except Mr. Cummings have been there for several months past, of course for that time we have been unrepresented, this I hope will not be the case in future, but permit me, Dear Sir, to request you will go forward and attend in your place the first Monday on November next, whether this is convenient to you, you will be pleased to signify to me.

Mr. W. Blount intends to go forward and is furnished with a Commission in which all the Delegates are named but if you intend going and think a separate Commission necessary it shall be forwarded to you. Please to let me hear from you respecting your Intention in this business as soon as possible.

With great respect & esteem I am, Dear Sir,
Your mo. obedt. Serv't.
