GOVERNOR MARTIN TO GREEN HILL, ESQUIRE, TREASURER OF HALIFAX DISTRICT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hillsborough, October 15th, 1783.

Sir:

A Warrant drawn in favor of Doctor Williamson in part of his public Salary as Delegate for the year 1783 hath been returned to me unanswered without any reasons assigned. The law has lodged in your hands the whole emission of the year 1783 in the first instance & the same is to be drawn out on the Governor’s Warrant for Special purposes mentioned in the Act of Assembly, among which the Civil List is included: the £2,500 for each of the District Treasurers excepted. I must consider you as the proper Treasurer on whom I am to draw in the first place for the Officers of Government.

You will therefore please to honor my Warrants for this purpose, as they will be generally drawn on you particularly for the Delegates in Congress.

ALEX. MARTIN.
