February 8th. 1763 -


Your Honour will herewith receive a
Letter from Don Pedro: the Express from New=
York is not yet arrived, nor Capt Longbottom,
who I am told came part of the way & returned to
Williamsburg, if so I hope he will bring your Honour
Determination in Council concerning his Affair

I shall refuse money from Don Francisco for his
Expences and mine to Williamsburg, & hope it will
be agreeable to your Honour that I charge it in the
Acct for Provisions &c

The Letters for the Secretaries of State were deli=
vered to Capt Chilcott who is to sail for Bristol in
a few Days. I shall get Mr Millers damage settled
soon & what further Commands you shall be pleased
to honour me with, will be carefully executed by

Yours &c

I did myself the Honour to write to you
the 8th. by the Packet. Capt. Longbottom is not yet
returnd. I have just now received a Letter from my
friend in Philadelphia to whom I recommended his
Letter to be sent by Express to New York, which was
done, but the person to whom it was directed was
gone to Albany, & his Wife would not give any Answer,
so no Credit is to be expected from that Quarter -

I am
Yours &c
