Copy of a Letter from Joseph Beete, Esq. addressed to Captain M'Leod and the Officers of the 1st Battalion Demerary Militia. [heading]
Plantation Phoenix, Demerary, 14th July 1806.
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 his death."
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 servant,
(Signed) Joseph Beete.
