Isaiah Doane to John Adams, 16 Feb. 1786

Boston 16th February 1786


Your Excellency’s goodness will excuse my Troubling you at this time, (I am certain) when you Consider the Consequence it is to me. I Refer to the Cause of the Brigt Mentor, the Papers of which Mr S. Brown and my self sent you last Spring through the hands of my Friends Messrs Land Son & Fraser, and have not since ben Honourd with any Account of the same, the Cause is of very great Consequence to me as I am half the owner of the sd Brigt & Cargo, and not one Shilling Insurance on same, wch falls very heavy Indeed, and I suppose if ever I get Justice it must be through your Influence, whch will lay me under an Eternal Obligation. I most Sincerely wish that your Excellency will think of the Cause and if your Business will Permit, let me know your mind on the Subject, whch will give great Satisfaction to your Obliged Friend / and Very Humble Servant
