HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA FROM WILLIAM WINDER.

Richmond, December 31st, 1787.

Sir:

The Board of Treasury have done me the honor to appoint me Commissioner under the Ordinance of Congress of the 7th of May last, to State the accounts of Virginia and North Carolina against the United States. The Ordinance requires that this business should be expeditiously performed; the accounts of this State are already under examination, and I would immediately proceed to North Carolina but cannot learn where your public accounts are kept.

Permit me therefore to request that your Excellency will please to favour me with a line by an early conveyance, informing me where it will be most convenient to exhibit the accounts of North Carolina against the United States, for the purpose cited in the above mentioned ordinance. With the most perfect respect, I have the honor to be

Your Excellency’s Most Obedient Servant,
WILLIAM WINDER.
