Richard Dobbs Spaight to John Gray Blount (July 3, 1787)

Philadelphia 3 July 1787 Dear Sir, I have twice wrote to you on the subject of receiving for me and remitting to me two months salary which the deputies have wrote to the Governor to advance to them, but have not had the pleasure of receiving any answer to them: I shall however rely upon your friendship in this instance, and depend upon the remittance being made by you. Indeed if you do not undertake it I know not to Whom to apply. The time which I expected to stay here is already elapsed and as I did not provide for a longer stay, my cash is already expended. Judge then my situation should I receive no further supplies. Your Brother left this yesterday morning for New-York, from whence he will return in eight or nine days. It is still uncertain when the Convention will rise. You will much oblige me by forwarding the inclosed to Jacob Johnston. I am with Regard Yours Sincerely Richd. Dobbs Spaight.
