[From Executive Letter Book.]

Salisbury, September 24th, 1783.

Sir:

I am favoured with your Excellency’s circular Letter of the 18th Ult. and in Compliance with the request therein I do myself the honor to transmit to your Excellency the names, subjoined hereto of the persons whose estates have been forfeited, and those who have been banished for being obnoxious to the Laws of this State. I shall consider myself honored with your Excellency’s future Correspondence on all subjects, especially those which concern the good Government of the Sister States of South and North Carolina whose interest from their local circumstances, inhabitants and Laws are, and ought ever to be mutual.

I have the honor to be,
ALEX. MARTIN.
