TOBAGO,
3rd July, 1803.
My LORD,
Having accompanied the Commander in Chief on the
expedition against St. Lucia and this Island, I meant to have
profited of the occasion offered by H.M.S. Argo to return
immediately to England but Lieutenant General Greenfield
having requested that I would remain a few weeks for the
purpose of arranging the affairs of this Island, the Lt. General
having promised to relieve me before the sailing of the convoy,
I trust I shall be able to return to England sometime in the
month of September and convince Your Lordship that the
calumnies, Mr. Fullarton has been disseminating everywhere
throughout the Islands of the Archipelago both French and
English, are but the ovcrflowings of malice.
He has circulated everywhere that I dare not return to
England. If zealous active and energetic services during
ten years in this country and 34 years general service during
which I have had the honour of repeatedly receiving His
Majesty's approbation of my conduct, do not entitle me to
the consideration of His Majesty's Government and my
country, it must be allowed that I have been rather
unfortunate.
However My Lord. I am ready to meet and answer
whatever can be urged against me from whatever quarter
it may come.
I have the honour to be, My Lord,
Your Lordship's obedient and humble servant,


TH. PICTON.
