Kingston, Jany. 27th, 1786.

Dear Sir:

A Council was appointed to be held at this place the 25th Inst., three members only have attended and are now waiting for a fourth. Business of consequence which cannot be done without advice of Council, must remain undone until I can collect a Board, and as you was elected a member of Council for the Current year, by the General Assembly, it becomes my duty to request you will be pleased to come forward, qualify and take your Seat at the Board. Pray be as expeditious as you can with convenience, or I fear the other members will separate before your arrival.

I am Sir, your mo. ob. Servt.,
