ON BOARD THE MAodeste,
PRINCE RUPERT'S BAY,
DOMINICA,
September 19th, 1763.
MY LORD,
*
I have communicated the instructions of Your Lordship
and of the Secretary of State for War relative to St. Vincent
and Tobago to Admiral Swanton and we have judged it most
proper to defer sending men to the latter until after the
hurricane months are passed ; want of cover for the men and
difficulty of erecting barracks in an uninhabited Island would
be sufficient to justify the delay but we apprehend that the
whole force we can spare from this Island may be all necessary
to curb the insolence of the French settlers and the natives
at St. Vincent.
We therefore propose to send ip five companies of the
4th Regiment in H.M.S. Winchester commanded by Captain
Dalrymple who, having been some time there, knows the
situation of the places and the disposition of the inhabitants.
Affairs once settled there, two companies can be removed
to Tobago.
*
I have the honour to be,
My Lord, with the greatest respect,
Your Lordship's most obedient
and most humble servant,

The Earl of Egremont, CAMPBELL DALRYMPLE.
Secretary of State.
