[From N. C. Letter Book. S. P. G]
Letter from Governor Tryon to the Vestry of St James Parish, New Hanover County.

Brunswick 9th Febry 1770.

As the Reverend Mr Wills (who has been long a resident among you) expressed desire of settling in your parish, I am to acquaint you that I propose to give him Letters of Presentation and Induction thereto. I should therefore be glad to learn from you Gentlemen whether there are any objections to Mr Wills in the duties of his sacred office.

I am &c,
Wm. TYRON.
