Letter from Mr. Stewart to the Secretary.

Bath North Carolina October 3rd 1767

Reverend Sir,

Since my last in April I thank God I am recovered from my tedious lameness beyond the expectation of every one that saw me I have since that baptized in this County 54 white and 13 black Infants and at Attamuskeet 154 white and seven indian and Mustee Children belonging to that place; Roanokes Island Hatteras Occacock &c and I have not much further to add (the state of my parish being much the same as last year) but to beg the indulgence of the Society in my drawing so often quarterly, for the province in general is so poor and this branch in particular that the Taxes are not to be collected for want of some circulating medium

I am Revd Sir &c
