David MASDEN, from Lenoir County, under Lieut. Nathan BYRD, from Craven County, under Lieut.

That if by the misconduct or negligence of any deputies, or through any mistake or inadvertance whatsoever any one remains unpaid, or unsatisfied, whom it was my duty to pay. I earnestly request and thus publicly call upon him or them to apply to me at my Office in the County of Carteret, for such amount of pay as is actually due, for, although I have paid every cent confided to me for the purpose, and advanced between 13 and $1400 cash of my own, previous to my settling my accounts with the public, of which money from my individual funds, not a cent on has been paid me nor a cent on account of my _rduous and laborious Service__ two years: I am not only unwilling but anxious that no person shall suffer any loss through their confidence in me. Signed. J. ROBERTS, June 14, 1817.
