GRENADA,
December Igth, 1771.
MY LORD,
I have been desired by the Council of the Island of Tobago
to request that the packets may be directed to call at that
Island on their way from Barbados to this place. As it is a
circumstance that is very material to that Colony which is
now making great advances in cultivation, may I entreat
Your Lordships protection of them and that they may be
indulged in this request which cannot be attended with the
smallest inconvenience but a few days delay to St. Vincent.

Some late insurrection of the Negroe. has been happily
quelled by the activity of the inhabitants and particularly of
Lieutenant Governor Young and a detachment of two
Companies from the 70th Regiment who immediately pursued
some slaves that fled into the woods, took several and obliged
the others to return to their owners.

I hope Your Lordship will think they have some merit
and be induced to procure them this indulgence from the
Post Office.

I have the honour to transmit to Your Lordship the
estimates of the Chief Engineer of the batteries necessary for
the defence of Tobago in consequence of orders he received
from General Melvill. As I am a perfect stranger to that








2

Island I can say nothing upon this subject but if Your Lordship
would wish for any further information than what the Chief
Engineer has reported to the Board of Ordnance, I must beg
to refer you to General Melvill who is perfectly acquainted
with the different points and bays that are mentioned in
the estimates.
The repairs of the barracks at Granby Point and the
Magazine for powder appear to be very material objects.

I have the honour to be, My Lord,

Your Lordship's most obedient and most
humble servant,

WILLM. L. LEYBORNE.
The Right Honourable
THE EARL OF HILLSBOROUGII.
