My Lord,
After considerable hesitation I have considered it but fair that I should forward certain minutes of the Executive Council respecting Mr Franks, whomtheManuscript image the Duke of Newcastle appointed Treasurer of this Colony.

I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
