Report of Commissioners Waddy Thomason, Charles Yance, and Thomas Johnson (June 16, 1788)

In obedience of a resolution of the Honourable Convention dated June 7th, in a matter of controversy between Colonel Richard Morris and Colonel William White.
It appearing to us, that a blank subpoena having been delivered to the sheriff, in consequence of which no witnesses appeared in behalf of said William White, as none could be summoned, and the said White failing to furnish said Morris with a list agreeable to a said resolve, we then proceeded to examine the witnesses in behalf of said Morris, which appeared agreeable to the enclosed affidavits, signed by us Capt William Smith appeared as agent for Colonel William White, and objected to the legallity of our proceedings without giving any satisfactory reasons to us for so doing.
Given under our hands this 16th day of June 1788
