Kingston, July 10th, 1786.

Sir:

Mr. Isaac Wheeler informs me that you have yet in custody of those Negroes brought in by him from Nova Scotia Sam and Peter, which have not been claimed by any persons, citizens of the United States; and as the two months mentioned in the order of Council of the 23d of March last giving claimants an opportunity of coming in have long since expired, you are required to deliver the said negroes,

I am Sir,
Your most obedient Servant,
R. CASWELL.
