Wms.burgh Janry. 7th. 1763

I have just received your Letter by the Packet.
Whatever Method you, Colonel Hunter and Captn.
Longbottom can agree on, conformable to the Rules
of the Navy to indemnify this Colony for the provisions
furnished to the Spaniards, as fair as the Crown can
indemnify it (for I suppose they are under certain
Limitations and Restrictions) will be equaly agree
-able to me; but I beg the Favor of you to go thro'
it before Captain Longbottom sails, otherwise we
shall meet with great Difficulties in settling it
afterwards. Please to make my Compliments
to Don Pedro with my Wishes for a prosperous
Voyage to his Native Country

I am Sr.
Yr. very hum. Sert.
Fran : Fauquier

To Mr. Charles Steuart.
