GOV. JOHNSTON TO THE COMMISSIONERS OF THE CONTINENTAL TREASURY.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 26th May, 1789.

Gentlemen:

I am favoured with your Letter of the 18th of April last and now enclose you a Copy of mine of the 15th January which it seems by some means had not reached you when you last wrote.

I have heard nothing of Mr. Constable. The State has now on hand near One Thousand Hogsheads of Tobacco of an excellent quality for Sale, the proceeds of which when Sold will be immediately paid into the Treasury of the United States. I should be happy to treat with any purchaser whom you may think proper to recommend on your agreeing to accept his Bills.

I have the Honor, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
