Letter from Governor Tryon to Governor Bull

Brunswick 17th June 1766

Their interest under their different circumstances are certainly mutual, and reciprocal. I have received by way of New York dispatches from the Secretary of State notifying the repeal of the Stamp Act, &c. I have inclosed the dispatches to the Governors of the Southern provinces, to Mr Barons a packet directed to Lord Charles Montagu makes me imagine his Lordship may be arrived at his government

I am Sir &c
