SAM. JOHNSTON TO RICH’D WINN.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 31st August, 1788.
Sir:

The Information which you did me the honor to favour me with in your Letter of the 9th had reached me some time past. I had given orders for process to issue to apprehend Sevier & had directed the Commanding Officer on the Frontier to pursue a Line of Conduct similar to that pointed out in your Letter. It gives me pleasure to find that your Ideas in this particular so intimately correspond with the measure I have adopted to restore & preserve the peace of the Frontiers.
