Copy of a Letter from Joseph Beete, Esq.
addressed to Captain M'Leod and the Officers of the 1st Battalion Demerary
Plantation Phoenix, Demerary, 14th July
I have the honour to inform you, that
two days since I received a letter from His Excellency General Hislop, Governor
of Trinidad, on the melancholy circumstance of the death of our deeply lamented
friend Colonel Macrae.
After expressing his heartfelt grief at
the very deplorable event that had deprived him of a friend - the integrity of
whose principles, the rectitude of whose heart, and the urbanity of whose
manners, had long rendered him an object of his most particular esteem, he
mentions having seen your resolutions, and subjoins –
"I should wish to be included in
the number who have voted the Monument to record the worth of my deceased
Friend. You will have the goodness to see how this can be effected so as to
make it as expressive as words can convey of the value I set upon his many
amiable qualities, and the loss I have sustained by the cruel event that caused
As I can find no words more expressive
than the General's own on this subject, I have quoted them literally, and shall
be extremely happy in being the instrument of carrying his wishes confided to
me into execution in any manner you shall be pleased to point out.
I have the honour to be, Gentlemen,
Your most obedient and very humble
(Signed) Joseph Beete.
