(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, April 30th, 1787.

Dear Sir:

Mr. Robert Stewart, Agent for Constable, Rucker & Co., is arrived at Washington in a Brig now ready to take in the public Tobacco. Pray give him every possible dispatch either by yourself or such person as you may appoint; you will be pleased to attend to the agreement, in every particular, which I had the honor to transmit you a Copy of a few days past. I believe it will be best to obtain the triplicate receipts for the Tobacco as delivered from time to time and remit them to me, one of which to be kept for the security of the State, and the other two to be transmitted by different Conveyances to the Board of Treasury and our Delegates; pray let me hear from you as this business goes on.

I am most respectfully, Dear Sir,
Your most obedt. Servant,
