[B. P. R. O. No. Carolina, B. T. Vol. 24. P. 225.]
Letter from the Board of Trade to the King.

May it please your Majesty,

We have had under our consideration an Act passed in your Majesty's Colony of North Carolina in Decembr 1771, intituled “An Act to amend an Act for founding establishing & endowing of Queen's College in the Town of Charlotte in Mecklenburg County.”

This Act, may it please your Majesty appears to have been passed in the year with that which it proposes to amend, & before any intimation of your Majesty's pleasure touching the same had been received; But as your Majesty for various reasons has thought fit by your Order in Council of the 22d of April 1772, to disallow the Act for the proposed Establishment of a College, this Act now submitted thereby becomes nugatory & improper and we therefore propose to your Majesty to signify Your Royal disallowance thereof. Which is most humbly submitted
