GOV. MARTIN TO THE DELEGATES OF NORTH CAROLINA IN CONGRESS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

North Carolina,
August 20th, 1782.

Gentlemen:

I have nothing new to communicate to you since you left us, except the several letters received from the Superintendent of Finance respecting the Continental Revenue demanded from this State.

I have written to him twice on that subject by way of apology for the Legislature not granting the supplies requested by Congress. Your interposition will be further highly necessary on this important business until the General Assembly again deliberate and determine thereon.

Enclosed I have transmitted to you the Acts passed last Session, necessary for your perusal in your present delegation. I shall, with pleasure, write by all opportunities informing you of every thing of moment, and shall expect the same from you.

I am, Gentlemen, &c.,
ALEX. MARTIN.
