So flattering a mark of attention from a Body so truly respectable is most gratifying to me, and will most gratefully live in my remembrance,
To a Soldier, the present of a Sword, you have Honored me with, is most valuable, and I shall feel inexpressible [sic] satisfaction wielding it in your Defence.
Permit me to assure you, that the Hospitality and Attention I have received from you, has made an impression not to be erased from my mind; and tho' Duty calls me from you to the colony of Berbice, I still hope to revisit the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo and renew those happy days I have passed in your Society.
The Welfare and Prosperity of the Colonies has ever been nearest my heart. - That the Planting and Commercial Interests of them my flourish to your utmost expectation is the fervent wish of your most obliged Friend
