MY LORDS :
I have heard nothing of the French since their engagement
with the Dutch. The Dutch in Tobago are in a most miserable
condition what with sickness and ill accommodation, many of
their officers and others come hither to get themselves ships
for England so that they may get home. A great number
of them are dead.
Your most humble and obedient servant,
