Sir:

In pursuance of a Resolution of Honorable the Treasurery Board of the 8th of January last, I have the Honor to transmit to that Board 1,302 Lottery Tickets received of Messrs Hewes and Smith, and also 124 of those sent to me to be disposed of. I had delivered 180 Tickets. No. 37,531 to 32,710 to a gentleman to put off, who being a considerable distance from here, and altho' I have written to him requesting a return of such as were unsold, I have not heard from him. When I do, if any tickets are unsold they shall be transmitted to the Board. The Certificates of those sent are enclosed with the Tickets under seal. I am, Sir,

Your mo. ob. Servt.
