I am favoured with yours of the 5th instant by Captain Doherty informing me of the sale of the lot whereon Singleton & Jones now live on the 28th.
Through hurry of business I did not draw an order in your favor on the Commissioner of confiscated property before you left Hillsborough for money arising from the sale of said lot for the support of your delegation at Congress, but by the Bearer I have done myself that pleasure, which you have enclosed.
Your intention of going immediately to Philadelphia gives me
I have received as yet no official accounts of the change in the Ministry, or scarce know anything in the great World, except from Commodore Gillon, who informs me he acted in concert with the Governor of Cuba in the reduction of the Bahamas to the arms of his Catholic Majesty.
It is not yet certain that Count De Grass is a prisoner.
I shall leave a letter for you at Halifax on your way to Congress.
