GOV. SAML. JOHNSTON TO RICHARD CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 28th February, 1788.

Dear Sir:

I have just received a Letter from the Vice Consul of France respecting a Debt due from this State to the Government of Martinique, desiring to know whether the measures taken by you had effected the payment of that Debt, & if not that would put it in his power to settle it. As I am altogether a stranger to this transaction you will oblige me in furnishing me with such information on the Subject as will enable me to return a satisfactory Answer to Mr. Ducker.

I am, &c., &c.,
SAML. JOHNSON.
