GOV. SAML. JOHNSTON TO JAMES PORTERFIELD, ESQR.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 19th May, 1788.

Sir:

I have not yet received any returns of your purchase of Tobacco on account of the State which I have been some time in expectation of, in Order that I might be enabled to contract for the disposal of it.

I some time ago wrote to you requesting that you would have the Tobacco which you may purchase sent down to Wilmington & there stored & lest my letter may have been miscarried I now repeat it.

I am with great Respect, &c.,
SAML. JOHNSTON.
