Your letter of the 24th Current I have received and referred the consideration to the Council, and in pursuance of the advice of that Board, I do request you permit the Gentlemen to remain in this state, on their parol until the meeting of the next General Assembly, that is to say, Messrs. John Burgwin and Robert Hogg, to Mr. Burgwin's plantation called the Hermitage, and Mr. Samuel Marshall to his plantation about seven miles from Wilmington. These parols you are also requested to have signed by the respective Gentlemen, and transmit them to me as soon as the same is practicable. You are further requested to order the Flag to depart the State in twenty four hours after you receive this notice. A permit will be sent the Captain herewith for that purpose accordingly. I am Gentn.
