Journal of Council in Assembly Friday Novr 6th 1713
The Governor was pleased to make the following speech
Gentlemen of the Council
and House of Burgesses.
The Cloathing you intended for the relief of North Carolina has all been bought up and delivered but the greatest part of the thousand pounds still remains unexpended which has been occasioned by that Government declining to join in such measures as I might reasonably think this sum was appropriated for, You shall have laid before you a particular account of what has been expended whereby may be observed that part has been for stores of war sent to North Carolina and the rest for expeditions undertaken against the same Indians who were fighting against that Government.
