Please to publish the enclosed Copy of a
Letter written to his Excellency Governor Bentinck some time previous to his
departure from the Colony.
Stabroek, Appril 9, 1807.
His Excellency Governor Bentinck,
Sir -- In consequence of the
conversation which I had with your Excellency yesterday, I am induced to state
in writing what I then explained.
I first heard from Mr. Armstrong, that
you had issued a Proclamation, dismissing four of the Members of the College of
Kiezers and myself. He informed me at the same time, that he had declared to
your Excellency (prior to the Proclamation) that I had not signed, nor had any
knowledge of the Letter addressed to you. This was literally the fact; for Mr.
Armstrong and myself left the fort immediately after giving our votes.
Mr. Nugent has also since given you his
testimony, but no blame could attach to me in this point. I was entirely
ignorant of you having adderssed a letter to the college, in answer thereto,
until I came to town; but as I was not present at the first meeting, I cannot
be imlicated in any of the proceedings of that meeting.
I declare solemnly, that since I have
had the honour of making one of that College, I have executed my duty
conscientiously, and, in every instance where I have given a vote, i have
considered the duty a most sacred one, and have religiously justified the tenor
of my Oath.
Had these circumstances been known and
duly considered, I have a confidence in saying, that you would not have
included me in such a Proclamation; and I am now candid in declaring that I
expect that justice from your Excellency, which the nature of the case
I have the honour to be your
Excellency's obedient, humble servant, (Signed) John Hubbard.
For a Cotton and Coffee Estate, an experienced
Manager. Any one who can produce good Recommendations, may hear further
particulars by applying to the Printer.
