Governor Dinwiddie to Colonel Innes.

April 12th, 1755.


Y'r Let'r of the 5th I rec'd last Night. [I] am sorry Mr. Walker has not p'd the £100. I have wrote him to send it to You, either from himself or Mr. Dick. Y'r Reasons for resigning Y'r Com'd are just, and [I] do think the Gen'l will take proper Notice of You. W't You wrote of the Militia agrees with my Opinion, and as the Assembly meets the 1st of May, I shall endeavour to enforce it. I shall leave y's in a few days for W'msb'g. Y'r Caution in Case of Surprize is very comendable. I wish you Health, and am Sincerely,

Sir, Y'r humble serv't.
