December 9th. 1762 -

Sir

I did myself the Honour to write to you
fully by Mr Bradley. Yesterday there was a Survey
on the provisions belonging to the Transport by the
Master of the Arundel, Mr Paul Loyall, Mayor of Norfolk
and Mr Maximilian Calvert, one of the Aldermen &
a Justice of the Peace. The two last have been Masters
of Vessels several years and are competent Judges
of provisions that are fit for Sea. I desired also
the two Spanish Captains to be present but they
did not stay long, & said they were satisfied with what
the Gentlemen should do: Some of the Provisions were
condemned, but the Report is not yet made out, for
I wait for a form from the Man of War: Capt Longbot=
tom will go over soon to Colo Hunter & I presume must
also wait on you for an Order to the Agent Victualler
to compleat his provisions, it being a rule that they
must be supplied by the same Authority that con=
demned the former

I am &c

The honble. Francis Fauquier esqr.
