Duke of Cumberland's Regiment
Jamaica 1st March 1784
Is was with great satisfaction I learnt by your letter to Captain STONEY of the navy, you had reached Halifax in good health & safety; and that Governor PARR had been (as I expected) extremely attentive to yourself and Corps.
I have laid your Lordship's letters & accompts transmitted from the Havanna, before the Agent General, & have directed your draughts to be honoured.
By Lieut. MELLISH of your Corps, I have the honour to forward to your Lordship, a letter which came under my cover from England; but which from the want of an opportunity, was till this moment delayed.
Your horse, left at my Pen, has got well of His lameness, which was more than the Farriers had predicted, on his being left here.
If I may advise your Lordship, I think your Attorney in this Island ought to have instructions to Sell him immediately, as Cattle is now a drag, & will soon be more so during the Peace.
I have the honour to be with great esteem and respect My Lord
Your Lordship's Most
The Right Honble.
