Letter from William Tryon to inhabitants of the town of Wilmington
Tryon, William, 1729-1788
August 02, 1766
Volume 07, Page 243

Brunswick Augt 2d 1766.


As your letter of the 28th of last month has remov'd those aspersions I felt you had laid on my Character in your Address to me on the 26th of June, I am now willing to forget every Impropriety of Conduct, any of the Subscribers and the Town of Wilmington have shown personally towards me in the late Commotions.

I thank you Gentlemen for the Testimony you give me of your approbation of my general Conduct; but my Acknowledgements are more expresely due for the Justice you do me in such part of my Conduct, as has been traduced by the Barbadoes Gazette of the 19th of April last.

I am, Gentlemen &c
To Moses John DeRosset Esqre Mayor And the Gentlemen of the Borough of Wilmington.
