My Lord,

This accompanies a Duplicate of my letter to Your Lordship of the 30th of April last to which I beg leave to refer and to the printed Journal herewith sent for the proceedings of the Assembly therein mentioned. I must also refer your Lordship to the Minutes of Council now sent to the Board of Trade for their Resolution touching the recruiting for His Maj. service and augmenting the Garrisons

last summer and to which I have referred your Lordship in my other letter,

I am now to acknowledge the receipt of His Maj. orders relative to the form of prayer for the Royal Family which came to hand last week and was immediately published. This morning I had the Honor of Your Lord's dispatches with the Preliminaries of Peace and His Maj. Proclamation for a cessation of Hostilities which I have ordered to be forthwith published. Permit me to felicitate Your Lordship upon this occasion as well in regard of the British Empire in general as of Your Lordship's being instrumental from your distinguished station in bringing about so glorious an event.

I am with the greatest respect &c.,
