GOV. THOS. BURKE TO JAMES COOR, ESQR.


State of North Carolina,

Sir:

I recollect your having mentioned, when I had the pleasure of seeing you last, that you were to take down to the public printer the

ratified acts of assembly; several of them I find, require immediate execution, and paper and writers are so difficult to be procured here, that I see no readier way for furnishing the copies than by sending to the printer for them. I request the favor of you to direct him to finish off immediately about sixty copies of the acts inserted in the inclosed list & to send them to me by the bearer. Be so good as to let me know what you have done in the matter, which you were so kind as to undertake relative to military stores.

THO. BURKE.
James Coor, Esqr.,
Newbern.
