GOV. JOHNSTON TO WILLIAM WINDER, ESQUIRE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 22d January, 1788.

Sir:

In answer to your Letter of the 31st of December which came to me only this evening, I have to inform you that the accounts of this State with the United States are lodged in the Comptroller’s office at Hillsborough. The Comptroller, Mr. Child, has orders to lay the proper Documents before you, whenever you can make it convenient to attend at that place. I hope you will find them so arranged that you will meet with little difficulty in making up your Report.

I am with great Respect, Sir,
Your most obedient Servant,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
