COL. HENRY YOUNG TO GOV. ABNER NASH, NEW BERN.

Fav'd by Mr. Bloodworth.


Wilmington, June 2nd, 1780.

Sir:

Within closed you have my bond for drawing £13,500 out of the Public Treasury to pay of the Volunteers & drafted Men sent out at three different times from this County, and would be much obliged to your Excellency to grant me a warrent on the Treasury for that sum, which when disposed of shall return an Acct. with vouchers for the same. There is at this time a Vessel taken up on account of the Publick, for removing the Publick Stores. There has been two hands on board her for a considerable time, who have not received any pay, and there is now hands wanting to assist to get a number of pieces of Cannon on board, which cannot be had unless there is money to pay them. Should you think proper to grant a warrent for a further sum than herein specified for that purpose, you may rest assured it shall be properly Accounted for.

I am, with Respect,
Yr. Excellency's Most Ob. Servt.,
HENRY YOUNG.

Sent money only on the Last draft, being £4,480, wh. delivered to Mr. Bloodworth.
