[From Tryon's Letter Book.]
Letter from Governor Tryon to Superintendent Stewart

Brunswick the 5th May 1766.

I last Saturday received the favour of your Letter of the 22nd & 24th of April with his Majesty's Instructions to his Governors published in 1763.

As my short residence in this Country and severe sickness has not given me an opportunity of informing myself so perfectly as I wish to be of the Settlements to the Westward of this Province I cannot at present give Mr Cameron Directions to survey the Line the Indians wish to have run as described in their Talk I can find Nobody that knows where Dewises Corner lies.

I shall lay your Correspondence before his Majesty's Council so soon as I can receive some particular Informations I have sent for from the Back settlements I shall then be able to hope to answer satisfactorily the different subjects contained in your Letters.

You give me pleasure in acquainting me I may have the pleasure of seeing you at Brunswick I wish to experience that satisfaction very soon

I am Sir &c
