SAM. JOHNSTON TO THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY OF THE UNITED STATES.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 25th October, 1789.

Sir:

In Consequence of a Credit which Mr. Royal Flint had obtained at the Treasury of the United States, when it was under the direction of the Commissioners, I have sold to him a quality of Tobacco, on Account of the State of North Carolina, and now inclose to you his Accepted Bill, for Eighteen Thousand, one hundred & thirty-Six Dollars, and thirty ninetieths of a Dollar, payable in Ten Days after Sight; The General Assembly of the State of North Carolina has directed, that this money be paid on Account of their proportion, of Interest, on the Foreign Debt due from the United States, you will therefore Credit the said State accordingly.

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