GOVERNOR BURKE TO MAJOR TATOM.

State of North Carolina,
Williamsborough, 23d July, 1781.

Sir:

I received a letter from you some days ago, which I have not yet had proper opportunity to answer. I shall answer as soon as I can do it to effect. I request you now to procure me a rheam of writing paper from Mr. John Kelly, & to send it by the bearer. Let Mr. Kelley be assured that I will see him paid in tobacco or money, (at his election) a reasonable price; and that when I come up, I will agree with him for his whole quantity.

(Signed)
THOS. BURKE.
Maj. Tatom.
