RICHARD HENDERSON AND OTHERS TO GOVERNOR THOS. BURKE.

Salisbury, March 20th, 1782.

His Excellency Thomas Burke, Esq., Gov. of North Carolina.

Dear Sir:—

We have enclosed the case of Col. Bryan to you, as a petition will be prepared to your Excellency praying the clemency of the State, and as we are uneasily of opinion that his execution would be a reflection upon our Government.

We have the Honor to be,
Your Excellency’s most Obedient Serv’ts,
RICHARD HENDERSON,
WILLIAM R. DAVIS,
JOHN KINCHIN.
