GOV. JOHNSTON TO THE DELEGATES IN CONGRESS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 29th June, 1788.

Gentlemen:

The above Extract from the Journal should have been sent to you by the Clerk of the Assembly before you left this State, but understanding from Dr. Williamson that it had not come forward, I now send it & request that you will use your best endeavours to bring forward this matter in Congress in such manner as you may Judge most likely to accomplish the wishes of the State.

I have the Honor, &c., &c.,
SAM. JOHNSON.
