Brigadier-general Maitland is to relieve Brigadier-general
Picton in the command of the troops in the Island of Trinidad.
Brigadier-general Maitland is to proceed to Trinidad with
as little delay as possible ; and Brigadier-general Picton, on
his being relieved, has the leave of the commander of the
forces to remain any time he thinks necessary at Trinidad
to settle his affairs and he may then proceed to Barbadoes or
to Europe, as he pleases, specifying his intention as soon
as possible to the commander of the forces.
