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

Edenton, 24th February, 1788.

Sir:

Your Letter of the 11th was this day handed me by Mr. Murphy. I had before received two of your Letters from Richmond which I immediately answered by post, and at the same time wrote to Mr. Childs to hold himself in readiness to receive you at Hillsborough, to which place I expected he had removed his office.

I hope you will meet with no difficulty in the execution of your Commission, and it will give me pleasure to afford every means within the compass of my power which may in any measure contribute to your ease and convenience in transacting the business.

I am with great respect sir,
Your most obedient Servant,
SAML. JOHNSTON.
