GRENADA,
April 4th, 1772.
My LORD,
There not being sufficient number of Councillors in the
Island of Tobago to make a quorum for the dispatch of
business, I have appointed James Elder and Peter Campbell
Esquires to seats there until His Majesty's pleasure be known.
Upon application to the Spanish Governor of Trinidad,
Don de Flores, to have some runaway Negroes from Tobago
restored who had taken refuge in Trinidad, he says that he
had wrote to Spain for orders with respect to them which,
when lie received, he would communicate.
I humbly submit to Your Lordship whether an application
to the Court of Spain for a cartel that the Governor of Trinidad
should deliver up all Negroes from Tobago that may take
shelter in that Island and a like obligation on our part to do
the same with respect to them, would not be a great means
effectually to put a stop to future insurrections for they look
upon Trinidad as their safe retreat.
I have the honour to be,
My Lord, with great respect,
Your Lordships most obedient and most
humble servant,

WILLM. L. LEYBOURNE.
The Right Honourable
THE EARL OF HILLSBOROUGH.
