State of North Carolina.

By his Excellency Thomas Burke, Esq., Governor, Captain General and Commander-in-Chief of said State:

A Proclamation.

Whereas, the General Assembly did not meet pursuant to their last adjournment, and therefore no place is appointed for the meeting thereof after the next annual General Election, I do therefore, by and with the advice and consent of the Council of State, appoint the said meeting to be at Hillsborough on Tuesday the Second day of April next where the Punctual and Early Attendance of the Members is Absolutely necessary.

Given under my hand and Seal at Arms at Halifax the 16th day of Feby, 1782, and in the Sixth year of our Independence.
