EXTRACT.
Although I have not been favoured with a line from you
for some time past, I have notwithstanding constantly
enquired after your welfare.
I cannot omit this opportunity to inform you that the
master of a vessel who arrived this day from Trinidada
assures me that a large number of small vessels with 500 men
were arrived there from Cumana.
They are bound up the River Orenoque, the branch
which trends away to the south east at the head of which
there are mines and which they are going to take possession
of. I therefore think it incumbent upon me to give you
this notice as they may perhaps enter upon lands within
your district. If I hear anything further I shall communicate
the same to you at once

1 beg to remain, Your Excellency's
Most obedient and humble servant


GEDNEY CLARKE.
