There happened lately another rising of slaves in Tobago
on one estate in which a while overseer was murdered but by
the quick and judicious measures of Lieutenant Governor
Young against them, they were so speedily routed and dispersed
into the woods as to be prevented doing further mischief and
it is thought that those which are out and do not exceed
thirty, will soon perish or submit.
I have the honour to be,
Your Lordship's most obedient and most
The Right Honourable
THE EARL OF HILLSBOROUGH.
