Last Thursday Gov. Dobbs retired from the strife and cares of this world. Two days before his death he was busily employed in packing up his books for his passage to England. His physycian had no other means to prevent his fatiguing himself, than by telling him he had better prepare himself for a much longer voyage. I have got into my possession the seal of the Province and many public papers the orders and instructions from your Lordship shall be obeyed with all possible dispatch. As my patron my Lord, I hope you will allow me to call on your Lordship's goodness, to forward his Majesty's most gracious promise to appoint me Governor to this Province.
