This will be delivered by my brother, who waits on your Excellency on some business of his own.
Mr. Isaiah Hogun is appointed Sheriff of this County, and has got your Excellency's Commission for that purpose. I hope by next opportunity to be able to transmit you the names of the militia officers. It may be also necessary to inform your Excellency that Major Surlock has accepted the Clerkship, which will necessarily vacate his seat in the General Assembly. The people are desirous that a new writ should issue for a member of the House of Commons in the room of Mr. Surlock.
