Whitehall August the 4th 1730.


I am directed by the Lords Commissioners for Trade and Plantations to acquaint you that they have signed their Representation to his Majesty in Council upon your Instructions so long ago as the 10th of June last, and have waited ever since for your List of Councillors; But if you do not bring them the names of Twelve persons proper to be inserted upon that occasion by Monday next Their Lordships will either send away your Instructions without Councillors, or name them without waiting any longer for your advice upon that subject.

I am Sir your most humble servant

Honble George Burrington Esqre
