8lh November, 1815.
MY LORD,
With reference to my former Reports upon the Arrival
of the American Negroes who all declared their Preference
of accepting Lands, to being Apprentices, I have the honor
to observe that as they arrived during the Wet Season it is
only lately that I have been enabled to place them in the
Country; during this Period the Expence of their Rations,
the Medical and Hospital Attendance has amounted to more
than : Cy. 2193 ,, 19 ,, o1: besides Superintendance, Tools,
and Cloathing, they must be provisioned for at least the next
six Months; perhaps longer, Several are still Sick.
I have therefore to request Your Lordships Favour to
procure the Reimbursement of this Sum to the Colonial Funds,
out of the unappropriated Seizures due to the King in the
Chest of the Custom House and which is amply sufficient
for the Purpose.
I have the honor to be,
\My Lord.
Your Lordship's faithful and
Humble Servant,

Earl Bathurst, RALPH WOODFORD.
