As I have applied to your Lordships by directions from Colo Robt Johnson late Governor of South Carolina for an Explanation of the Instruction for Settling the Boundarys of that Province and the Province of North Carolina I take leave to lay before your Lordsps an Extract of a letter I have lately received from James Abercrombie Esqre Attorney Genl of South Carolina who was sent as one of the Commissioners to Cape Fear upon that service which I hope is now performed in such a manner as to free your Lordships from the trouble of any further enquiry into this affair.
To the Right Honble the Lds Commissioners for Trade & Plantations.
On my return from Cape Fear in North Carolina where I have been as one of three Commissioners to settle boundary between this and that Province which we have been so lucky as to accomplish to general satisfaction and at last remove that bone of contention I had the pleasure of both yours vizt Febry 13th & Febry 24th 173 4-5.
