(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, 24th April, 1787.

Dear Sir:

By my son Winston I forwarded a letter to Mr. William Blount under the cover of which is enclosed his Comn. as a Deputy from this State to the Convention, also hard Money to the value of £128 at 12, and a warrant in favour of Mr. Spaight for £64 for which Cash was exchanged with him at the same rate; the money & the warrt. amot. to £192, which is equal to a sum I drew from Capt. Davis in my own name, therefore to exonerate me from that charge and place it to the account of Mr. William Blount please to send me a Recet.

I also send a warrant in favor of W. B. for £64, the amot. of these two warrants can be obtained from Mr. Reed and I hope you will receive it in Time to remit to W. B. However, I have no doubt of your having any difficulties on that accot. as I know you can draw bills upon the spot when the Convention will sit. You will be pleased to forward the Letter to W. B. from Washington by such

Conveyance as you think proper or let Winston take it to Mr. Spaight at New Bern.

I am very respectfully, Dear Sir,
Your most obedt. Servt.,
