GOVERNOR JOHNSTON TO THOS. PERSON, WM. GREEN AND MATTHEW LOCKE, ESQRS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Halifax, 27th April, 1789.

Sir:

As the accounts of this State with the United States are now about to be laid before the Continental Commissioners at New York, it is proper that the Gentlemen appointed by the General Assembly held at Fayetteville in 1786 to receive and correct the proceedings of the Commissioners appointed to settle the Accounts of the Troops of this State, who served in the Continental Army during the late war, should make their Report as soon as possible that the State may have full credits with the United States for the sums due on that Account.

You will be pleased to inform me what progress has been made in that Business and at what time it is probable your Report will be Compleated.

I am, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
