FROM JOHN CAMPBELL TO SAMUEL SWANN.

Lazy Hill, Bertie, November 14th, 1759.

Sir:—

My health at this time is such that I can’t possibly attend this session of the Assembly at Wilmington. Therefore crave being excused.

The bearer, Colonel Harvey, can inform you and the House that besides my own indisposition my wife lays dangerously ill with the pleurisy, and several others of my family very unwell. I wish you a happy session, and am, sir,

Your most obedient servant,
JOHN CAMPBELL.
