Kingston, July 10th, 1786.

Dear Sir:

I have the honor to enclose you herewith a Commission, directed to all the Commissioners, for meeting the other Commissioners of the other States, to take into consideration the Trade and Commerce of the United States, and a warrant on the Treasury in your favor for £100, to defray your expences in this service. I have delayed this business longer than I wished on account of my waiting to know the sense of the other Gentlemen in the Commission.

I had written to them many weeks past and informed them that you had consented to go, and I wished to be informed if it would be agreeable to them to undertake the business. Dr. Williamson and Mr. Blount have answered in the affirmative. To them I also forward Commissions and warrants similar to yours.

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