My dear King
I hope the Lords of the Treasury will not think
my hiring vessels to guard the coasts of this Island
extravagant. The enemy have been using every means
to send emissaries amongst us to corrupt the Negroes;
four of them, who came some time ago in an open boat
from St Vincent, were caught just as they were land-
ing in a remote part of the Island and they are now in
custody.
We are doing everything in our power to prepare
for an attack. Mr Victor Hughues, the French Commis-
sioner, threatens us with a visit. Our garrison is red-
uced to 80 men but the inhabitants are all fine brave
fellows and, thank God, they must fight for they are
all in a manner proscribed and will in all probability
be treated as rebels.
Believe me, My dear King,
Yours most sincerely
William Lindsay.
