FRANCIS CHILD TO HIS EXCELLENCY SAML. JOHNSTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hillsborough, March 10, 1788.

Sir:

The foregoing is a Copy of mine sent by post which I hope you have received and that you will by the Bearer, Mr. Courtney, give me the necessary directions, so that I may employ a Clerk or two as Mr. Winder is here and we cannot proceed on the business with the necessary dispatch without them.

I find by Mr. Winder that he will not receive the Continental money from me, therefore must request your Excellency to enquire of Genl. Skinner, the Treasurer of the Loan Office, whether he will receive it or not, and if he will not, I submit it to you whether it would not be necessary to write to our Delegates in Congress to know what is to be done with it.

I am your Excellency’s
Most Obedient humble Servant,
FRANCIS CHILD.
