GRENADA,
September ioth, 1773.
MY LORD,
With respect to Tobago I have the honour to inform
Your Lordship that soon after my arrival in this Government,
I transmitted to the Earl of Hillsborough, the Engineer's
report of the defences necessary for that Island which I beg
leave to refer Your Lordship to, but as I had not been on the
spot I could say nothing of my own knowledge.
I have since examined the different bays mentioned in
the Engineer's report; his observations appear to me very
judicious and proper and as such I beg leave to recommend
them to the consideration of the Board of Ordnance.
I am humbly of opinion if there are not batteries for the
defence of these bays, the Island will be greatly distressed
in case of war, the situation of Tobago being so near the
Spanish settlements makes it very probable that they will be
harassed unless they have batteries to protect them.
I have the honour to be,
My Lord, with great respect,
Your Lordships most obedient and
humble servant,

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