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

Edenton, 25th August, 1788.

Gentlemen:

Since I wrote you on the 15th the enclosed Copies of Resolutions of the Convention have come to hand & Agreeably to order of the Convention I have forwarded a Copy to the President of Congress & to the Governors of the respective States in the Union. I think it is proper that you should likewise be furnished with a copy, tho’ no order of Convention to that purpose, in order that you may have the substance of their proceedings before you. As soon as the Journal is published at large I will send you a Copy; I also send you an Authenticated copy of the Act of Assembly which enacts that the treaty of peace shall operate as a Law of this State.

I am, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
