Kingston, 12th March, 1786.


I had the honor to receive your letter of the 1st Ulto., enclosing a Representation of the States in Congress, January, 1786, which shall be laid before the Legislature.

I did expect this State would have been represented in the course of last month, but suppose some matters have turned up which have prevented the Gentlemen from going on so soon, as they had intended. However, I have on the return of Col. Blount from the Indian Treaties lately held to the Southward, where he was as our agent, the strongest assurances that he will go on, and that of some other Gentlemen, so that I have no doubt we shall have in a few days a full representation in Congress which will continue to the end of the year.

I have the honor to be, with great respect and esteem Sir,
Your mo. ob. humbl. Servt.,
