My Lord

X X X

The Island of Martinique is so much overrun with
Ants that the inhabitants offer a reward of a million
livres in Martinique currency to any person of whatev-
er nation soever who shall effectually extirpate them.
The Comte de Nozieres,Governor General of the French
Islands,sent me the proposals which I have laid before
the Council and Assembly but I believe no additional
reward will be offered from here.
The Ant is not the greatest evil our planters com-
plain of nor are they so numerous as formerly but there
is what is called the Borer which is a worm in the in-
side of the cane and which entirely destroys it; and
the Green Fly which occasions a blast. If these evils
do not prevail to any degree this year, there is a pros-
pect of a very fine ensuing crop.
I have the honour to be,My Lord,
Your Lordship's
Most humble and obedient servant
Edw Hay.
The Right Honourable
The Earl of Dartmouth.
Secretary of State.
