SAM’L JOHNSTON TO JOHN HUNT, ESQUIRE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hays, 4th January, 1788.

Sir:

I am this day favoured with your Letter of the 24th of last month, covering two Resolves of the General Assembly, one appointing purchasers of Tobacco, the other relating to Mr. Blackledge. The Orders from the Continental Treasury, on their Treasurer of Loans in this State should be lodged with Mr. Skinner and his Receipts taken for them, which Receipts must be lodged with the Comptroller of this State, to enable him to obtain a Credit on the Accounts of the State, on a settlement with the Commissioners of the United States, if you could forward those orders to me by a safe hand I would take care to have the Business properly transacted.

I am, Sir,
Your Obedient Servant,
SAM’L JOHNSTON
