Letter from Gabriel Johnston to Thomas Hill
Johnston, Gabriel, ca. 1698-1752
April 16, 1750
Volume 04, Page 1082


Edenton. April 16th 1750.

Sir, [Secretary of Board of Trade]

I have sent along with this my Answer to the Memorial of Henry McCulloh which was not served upon me until the 7th of March last, together with the proper Vouchers. As there are several general charges in the Memorial the particulars of which I cannot easily guess, until I am served with a Copy of their proofs, I shall take care to send a full answer to them, as soon as they come to my knowledge. The preceding year proved but very indifferent for producing of Indigo and there was but a very small quantity raised in this province, the particulars of which I have sett down in the next page.

I am, &c.,
GAB. JOHNSTON.
