Enclosed I send you my bond as directed by the council. I hope the sureties will be acceptable, you'll please to send me by the bearer Mr. John McKethan, the needful for me until the Assembly meets. Mr. McKethan waits on your Excellency with regard to the election for soldiers to go to Camp. I wish the Assembly may have left it in your power to give redress. If you have a spare copy of the laws and will send it to me by the bearer it would greatly oblige your most most humble servant.
