Whitehall.
3rd August 1781.
Sir
I have received and laid before the King,your dis-
patches of 16th June and 2nd July from Barbados.
The capture of the Island of Tobago in your and
the Admiral's absence is a very mortifying account.Its
sudden surrender when a force for its relief was so
near and the enemy scarcely more numerous than the
garrison, is altogether unaccountable.
But presumably Lieutenant Governor Ferguson and
the Officers who commanded the detachment of the King's
troops in the Island when they arrive, will be able to
account for it.

I have the honour to be, Sir
Your most obedient and most humble servant
Geo Germain.
The Commander in Chief
Sir John Vaughan.
