Abstract

Contains a draft of a letter from Lieutenant Governor Alexander Spotswood to the Speaker & House of Burgesses regarding an account of expenditures from the sum appropriated for the relief of North Carolina. Spotswood writes that there has been no fraud in supplying North Carolina with clothing, ammunition, & stores of war. Spotswood also writes that North Carolina refused to supply provisions to soldiers from Virginia marching there against the Tuscarora Indians. As a result, Spotswood states that he has confined undertakings against the Tuscarora Indians to the north side of the Roanoke River.
