FROM EDWARD WINSTON TO GOV. MARTIN.

Fayetteville, July 24th, 1784.

Sir:—

On fixing the dividing line between the county of Cumberland, we find a mistake which would operate much against the lower part of the county, in consequence of which Ira Adkins, Esq., one of the Commissioners, has declined acting, and some who wish the county divided, even with the mistake, mean applying to your Excellency to appoint another in his room. I must, therefore, request you would decline doing anything of the kind until the Assembly sits again, that there the mistake may be first rectified.

I am, sir, respectfully, your humble servant,
EDWARD WINSTON.
His Excellency, Governor Martin.
