GOV. JOHNSTON TO RICH. WINN, SUPT. OF INDIAN AFFAIRS SO. DEPARTMENT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 27th January, 1789.

Sir:

I am just now favoured with your Letter of the 13th of December enclosing the Talks of the Cherokee Indians for which you will be pleased to accept my thanks.

As my dispatches to you from Fayetteville must have reached you before this, you will be fully informed of the disposition of this State respecting Indian affairs, since that time I have received no authentic intelligence from the Western Frontiers of this State respecting the Indians. When ever any such intelligence shall be communicated to me I will be careful to inform you of it.

I am, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
