Dear Sir:—

Your several letters of the 19th and 24th curr't I have received,

-------------------- page 538 --------------------
but cannot, without the advice of the Council, do any thing respecting the subject matter of them. The Council is to meet at Kingston the 4th of August next, when I will lay those letters before them, and if you think proper to send out then, I shall be able to inform you the result of the Council. I have much business on hand at present. You will therefore be pleased to excuse my not writing particularly to you and Mr. Benbury, assure yourselves that every step in my power shall be taken to secure Mr. Brimage, and the other matters recommended in your letters shall be properly attended to by

Dr Sir, Your most obe't Ser't.,
Rob. Smith Esq.
