Kingston, June 7th, 1786.


I am honored with your letter of February last respecting the forfeiture of your Estate in this Country. You are pleased to put a number of queries to me, which if it was ever in my power to answer, it is now unnecessary. Be pleased to receive the enclosed Copy of an Act of the General Assembly of this State, passed in their last Session. By this I flatter myself you will find that justice attempted to be done you, which your friendship entitled you to. I would have authenticated the Copy under the Seal of the State, but the Secretary was absent from his office, so that his signature could not be had, but you may rely on its being a true copy as I was present at the examining and compared it with the original. If you think it necessary, such an one may be at any time forwarded; if in that or any other part of the business I can be of service to you be pleased to signify as much and I shall most cheerfully attend to your commands.

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