JOHN KINCHEN TO GOVERNOR JOHNSTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Halifax, 8th April, 1789.

Sir:

My ill state of health still continuing without the least abatement, I am reduced to the necessity of trying a Change of Climate, in the course of this Spring or early in the Summer, and of course cannot have it in my power to attend to the duties of a Member of the Council. This very unhappy situation makes it absolutely, for the dispatch of Publick business, that I should resign. You will therefore be pleased to consider this as a resignation of my office.

I have the honor, &c.,
JOHN KINCHEN.
