June 6, 1756 set of instructions given with the letters of marque (a license to fit out an armed vessel and to commit acts that would otherwise have
constituted piracy) against France. Included are manuscript drafts of the documents. Of note, the first copy these instructions appeared to have
fire damage; the second copy is in very good condition. In addition, the second copy was found among the 1756 papers of Arthur Dobbs, the governor of
North Carolina from 1754 to 1765. See LLMC #21036-39 for related documents. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the New York
State Library (c.1) and the Department of Archives and History in Raleigh, North Carolina (c.2)).
