Kingston, 12th September, 1786.

Dear Sir:

Enclosed is a Petition I received yesterday; altho' it has been since the 23rd of last month on its passage, by which means it may be too late for a Commission to be of any use, as the Judges I presume before this time are on their Circuit, yet I consider it my duty to take the opinion of the Council on the subject matter of the Petition. But as that is the only thing I have to lay before the Board I do not wish to give the members the trouble of coming here; therefore, I request that you will be pleased to convene the Council, lay the Petition before them, obtain the advice of the Board and forward the same to me by the return of the Bearer on Thursday next.

I have the honor to be,
With great respect Sir,
Your most obedient Servant,
