To Otho H. Williams
December 6. 1791.
It is understood that a brig called the Dove formerly of Glocester in Massachusetts and commanded by Josiah Parsons has been sold in Europe, under circumstances that give rise to some apprehensions in regard to the misuse of her certificate of registry. I wish to be informed, if it has been returned to your office and when.
I am, Sir, Your obedt. servant
Otho H. Williams Esq.
