Letter from Josiah Collins to John Hamilton
Collins, Josiah, 1735-1819
November 25, 1790
Volume 22, Page 802


Edenton, 25th November, 1790.

Dear Sir:—

I understand there are letters in town which mention much business before the Assembly; if so, we cannot expect to see you till after Christmas.

I wrote the Governor in May last, that I had been informed he would have a quantity of hemp for sale this fall, and requested him to let me know his price per ton in hard money, the hemp to be delivered in Halifax. Whether my letter miscarried or not, I don’t know, but I never received an answer. I will thank you to speak to him on this subject.

If an opportunity offers, should be glad to hear what you are doing. Your little boy is well. No news.

I am, dear sir,
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
