COL. JAMES HINTON TO GOVERNOR ABNER NASH.

Wake, 24th June, 1780.

The Bearer, Hugh Ector, will wait on your Excellency for a warrant on the Treasury for 50,000 dollars. The bounty due the Militia on the first Draught in this County will Amt. to 14,700 Dollars, when there was only five Volunteers. Those that remain will but make up the number Intended to march on the present draft. Therefore I expect they will turn out Volunteers, from which I am induced to think it will take the sum of money in the Warrant to pay them off. They go with greater Alacrity when the bounty is paid. I have enclosed a bond which I hope will meet with your Approbation.

Your Excellency's most Obedt. Servt.,
JAS. HINTON.
