I have written you twice since I came here & recd. from you a Letter by Capt. Craddock since which I have no Accots. from Kingston or its neighbourhood.
The Assembly has been sitting since Monday was a Week, a Grand Committee has been appointed to take under Consideration public Dispatches & informations also to report the Bills, of a public Nature, necessary to be passed into Laws. They have made few Reports yet. We have a very full representation, about 100 Members of the House of Commons & 46 of the Senate. Disputes will run high respecting thc return of Loyalists, refugees, &c. A Governor is to be elected on Monday next, Govr. Martin, Mr. Johnston & myself were put in Nomination, Mr. Johnston has declined and I shall do the same before the day of election. The Assembly mean to fix the Governor's Salary before the election, a Bill is now before them, it will be reduced to 7 or 800£, I expect the Comptroller's will be reduced in proportion, if it is, I shall resign, and then be at Liberty to follow my own pursuits, in which case, I think to visit the Western Waters. Comrs. from Georgia are to be at the Long Island of Holston
I have written to your Mother & Capt. Child by this conveyance. I hope you & Gatsey are well. I begin to be uneasy on her Accot. & Shall be glad to hear from you respecting her. Remember me to your Brother & Polly, tell him he may Spare a few minutes to give me a line. I have now exhausted my Spare Time as well as the Subjects on which I have written. My sincerest Love Attends you all from
