Whitehall 18th February 1763


It is with the highest Satisfaction I am now able to acquaint You, that Mr. Neville, Secretary to His Majesty's Embassy at the Court of France, arrived here on Tuesday last in the Afternoon, with the Definitive Treaty of Peace between His Majesty, & the Most Christian & Catholick Kings, signed at Paris on the 10th Instant, to which the Portuguese Ambassador acceded the same Day; I most sincerely congratulate You on the Completion of this great & salutary Work, & you will make the proper Communication of this happy Event within Your Government.

I am Sir, &c

P. S. The Mail for No America not being yet dispatched gives me an Opportunity to add that the Ratifications of the Definitive Treaty were exchanged on the 10th Inst between all the Four Powers.
