GOVERNOR JOHNSTON TO WILLIAM LITTLEJOHN.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hayes, 30th May, 1789.

Sir:

I have your Letter of yesterday now before me. You may have an Hundred Hogsheads of Tobacco or more on your obtaining a Credit in favour of this State with the United States. If the Tobacco is taken at the Weights mentioned in the Inspector’s Notes, you may have it at Three Dollars. If reweighed at Three Dollars and one-third of a Dollar. I believe the Tobacco is of the first Quality.

I am, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
