[From Tryon's Letter Book.]
Letter from Governor Tryon to Earl Hillsborough.

Brunswick the 11th Feby 1769.

I beg leave to refer your Lordship to the written list in order to observe the quantity of land granted in Tryon County at the last court tho' but a very inconsiderable part of what has been granted by this government, while that county was part of Mecklenburg. This circumstance I trust will have its weight among the objections I made against the partition line proposed to me by Lord Charles Montagu, between the two Carolinas.
