CHARLES JOHNSON TO GOV. JOHNSTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Strawberry Hill, 15th Aug., 1788.

Sir:

As the Inhabitants of the County seem desirous of Electing me to represent them in the next General Assembly; and as agreeable to the Constitution, I cannot have a seat in either House while I remain a Member of the Council of State.

To comply with the wishes of the County I am under the necessity of resigning that Office. I therefore request your Excellency to accept my resignation of it.

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