[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kinston, N. C., 7th Nov., 1785.


I had the honor to receive your Letter of the 20th ulto, ten days after its date the day following. I communicated the Contents to Francis Child, Esquire, Comptroller of the public Accounts, as the only public officer that I knew of in this State with whom you had business as Commissioner, since which I have recollected an Assistant purchasing Commissary whose duty I believe will be to settle the accounts with you, to him (Mr. Joseph Green) I have this day written on the subject, and 'tis probable when I shall have the pleasure of seeing you at New Bern where I expect to be in five or six days, we may find out some other accountants.

I have the honor to be Sir,
Your most obedient and very humble Servt.,
