Monseigneur

Since our departure from France, we believe that
you would approve of all the efforts we are making to
obtain accurate information about the Spanish Colon-
ies.

Since our arrival here, we have been continually
occupied with this matter and Monsieur de St Laurent
decided to go over to the Island of Trinidad last Oct-
ober. You have received in his letter of December
1786, all details of the meetings with the Governor,
Engineer and other Spaniards. You will also have
learnt from this letter, how they were expecting in a
short time at Trinidad, Monsieur de Saavedra, who, it
is believed,had gone to Madrid to receive instructions
from the Minister of the Indies.

Monsieur de St Laurent has also informed you,
Monseigneur, that we shall not fail to go to Trinidad








whenever Monsieur de Saavedra may arrive in order to
consult with him and with the Governor, Monsieur de
Chacon, on all affairs concerning our two nations in
these parts.

Since then, we have maintained an active corres-
pondence with Monsieur de Chacon. The visit of Mon-
sieur le Chevalier de Cres, of which Le Comte Dillon
informed you by letter of 28th May, will prove to you
with what confidence we have been able to inspire the
Spanish Governor.

We are with the greatest respect,
Monseigneur,
Your very humble and obedient servants

Dillon.


Roume de St Laurent.
