Letter from Thomas Burke to John Walker
Burke, Thomas, ca. 1747-1783
February 05, 1782
Volume 16, Pages 188-189

TO JOHN WALKER, COMMANDING OFFICER AT WILMINGTON, FROM
GOV. THOMAS BURKE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Little River, February 5th, 1782.

Sir:

I have written to the Commanding Officer at Wilmington, on the subject of the Flag, and some time since to General Lillington on the subject relative to the persons ordered to remove.

Mrs. Dubois must be accused of some criminal practices before such proceedings, as you recommend, can be justifiable.

The commission, you mention, has been given a few days ago to Mr. John Moore, on the request of Mr. Ashe, resigned.

I am, Sir, your ob. Serv’t,
THOMAS BURKE.
