Sir
I am very sorry to acquaint Your Excellency that
we have just received intelligence of a French force
having landed to windward of this Island last night and
having taken the town of La Baye and massacred many
inhabitants.
The danger of these being joined by some of our
own republican French subjects induces us to make ap-
plication for every assistance and from the immediate
vicinity of Your Excellency's Government we trust that
you may be enabled to afford us some.
The whole expedition consists only of privateers.
A naval force, if it was only a frigate or sloop of war,
sent instantly might save the Island.
The alliance between our respective Courts added
to our perfect knowledge of Your Excellency's private
character, induces us to depend upon your every exer-
tion in a moment pregnant with so much danger as well
to the Spanish as to the British Colonies.
I have the honour to be,Your Excellency
Your most humble and obedient servant
Jos Bute.
Secretary.
By Command of
His Honour the President and Council.
To His Excellency
Don Josef Maria Chacon
Governor of Trinidad.
