SUMMARY.
Mr. Henry Dundas assures Sir Ralph Abercromby that it
is bv no means his intention to deprive him of the discretionary
powers which are granted to him by his instructions.
Mr. Dundas takes a general and comparative view of the
advantages to be derived to Great Britain from the possession
of Porto Rico, the conquest of which he considers to be an
object of much greater importance than the capture of the
Island of Trinidad.

At the same time he suggests that it would be very desirable
that Sir Ralph Abercromby should take such measures against
Trinidad as may have the effect of quieting the alarm which so
universally prevails in the minds of the West Indian merchants
and planters before he proceeds against the former settlement.
