Sir
I have the honour to acquaint you that I have just
received intelligence that four large ships and some
small vessels which make nine in all,were seen from the
windward part of the Island at sunset. If they should
prove to be the enemy, it will be impossible for any of
the vessels at this Island to reach Your Excellencies
if I should delay dispatching them till daybreak as they
will be intercepted. I therefore think it necessary to
send them off with this intelligence.
If they should not be a detachment from Your Ex-
cellencies fleet,you will of course,Ipresume, conclude
they are an enemy's come to attack the Island and that
you will relieve it if possible.
I have the honour to be, Sirs
Your Excellencies'
Most obedient and most humble servant
George Ferguson.
Their Excellencies
Sir George Rodney General Vaughan.
