[From Tryon's Letter Book.]
Letter from Governor Tryon to the Board of Trade.

Newbern the 29th June 1771.

My Lords,

I have been honored with your Lordships dispatch bearing date the 12th December 1770, and am no less sensible of the force of your obligations [objections?] to my conduct in a legislative capacity, than I am to your candor in so distinctly pointing them out to me, as well as the favorable light in which you view some of them, from the importance of their objects.

As I embark tomorrow for New York I shall leave it to Governor Martin to get (next Session of Assembly) the amendments made in the laws as recommended in your dispatch.

I am, &c.
