COL. McKENZIE’S LETTER AND RETURN OF DRAFT.

Per Express, New Bern, June 9th.

His Excellency, Abner Nash, Esq.

Honorable Sir:

Finding my former Draught on the Treasury inadequate to the Exigencies of this County on the present Occasion, Am under the necessity to address your Excellency for a Warrant for the further Sum of sixteen hundred Pounds, and have inclosed my Bond for that purpose. Also have inclosed a List of the Drafts of Volunteers raised in this County for the present Expedition. I am in want of a Dozen blank Militia Commissions, one Sheriff’s.

I am, with the highest Esteem, Your Excellency’s most Obedient Servant,
KENNETH McKENZIE.

Martin Co., June 4th, 1780.
