FRANCIS CHILD TO GOV. JOHNSTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hillsboro, July 20th, 1788.

Sir:

A few days ago the Commissioners of Confiscated property in the County of Dobbs, presented an account of Debts, due from Sundry Individuals in this State, to persons proscribed in the Confiscation Laws, and tendered Certificates for payment, but as a Resolve passed the last Session of Assembly implying that no Suits should be Commenced against others who owed in like manner, I refused to take the Certificates but for fear I should have been wrong in so doing I should be glad of your Instructions in the Matter.

I am, &c., &c.,
FRAN. CHILD.
