Kingston, September 18th 1786.


I had the honor to receive your letter of the 17th of July last, informing me of the Chevelier de Chateaufort having obtained leave of absence from his Consulship, and of your appointment in his absence, which permit me to congratulate you upon.

I have granted Messrs. J. G. & Thos. Blount warrants on the Treasury to the full amout of the balance due from this State to the Government of Martinico, and make no doubt before this, the amount is remitted in produce to Philadelphia. I am extremely obliged for your tender of services to me. At present I have not anything to give you the trouble of; when I have I will take the liberty you have granted me.

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