S. Augustin 11th Oct. 1797.

My dear Sir
th
The 9. instant I had the pleasure of receiving-

your favour of llth ult- My last to you was of 19th Apr[il.

by) Captain Hacket who sailed from this 6 May, but which]
letter I suppose was lost.
I am very sorry you should be obliged to come] to

the determination of leaving us, [but perhaps] you will] ob-

tain what you so justly demand. I have perused all the papers

you sent MT Leslie, but he has not as yet informed me of his

decision regarding their remission to Savage. I proposed for-
warding them by the way of our Minister in Philadelphia, which

if he agrees to, I shall recommend them to Savage with the
greatest pleasure.
I told you in a former letter that LMrs Fish had

)(leftOus for Charleston; her Son still remaining] here at v

his [P]lantation on Anastaoia Island. The seven thousand and
[2]
odd Dollars to pay [his] / Father's debts have been replaced
in the Kings chest, the Contador & Treasurer having completed

the deficiency between them in equal shares of 1000 and odd
each, and the Auditor continues the Suit against both for the

failure of the Treasurer. [I] have not seen Iv. Queen for some.

time as he is busy at his [Plan]tations getting in his Crops,
which this year have been [very] plentiful.
By the American papers Ki Leslie will send you, you







[will learn the BEnjbar ent of Gadiz, sailing of the Dutch

[Ejpedition from the Texel, the Congress at Lisle for a gen-

eral peace, of which I am sorry to say I see but a gloomy

prospect. They have got the yellow feaver at Philadelphia

of which from 20 to 30 die daily. This place continues healthy

and in this state remains your af4 friend & humble Servant.
