Whitehall.
11th March 1790.
Sir
I have received your letters of 28th September
and 18th October last and have had the honour of lay-
ing them before the King.
lHe has commanded me to signify to you His Royal
approbation of the steps you have taken for guarding
against the ill consequences likely to arise from the
Proclamation recently published at Trinidad with a
view to encouraging slaves from the Colonies belong-
ing to Great Britain and other European Powers, to
desert.
A similar conduct on the part of the Governor of
Spanish Colonies has, upon previous occasions, been
a subject of complaint and these representations have
been renewed on the present occasion. Whenever a de-
cisive answer is obtained from that Court, I shall not
fail to acquaint you with the result.
Similar complaints have, I understand, been made
at Madrid by the French Government but I do not find
that any decision has been communicated to the Minis-









2

ter of His Most Christian Majesty there on the subject.
I have the honour to be, Sir,
Your most humble and obedient servant
W.W.Grenville.
His Excellency
General Matthews.
Governor of Grenada.
