Girault Gresil, Portrait Painter, has
the honour to inform the ladies and Gentlemen of this colony, that he has
removed to the House in Vlissingen, next to that of S. Mourant, Esq. where he
hopes to experience the further encouragement of a generous Publick.
A report having been circulated, that
the materials used by Mons. Gresil were not adapted for this climate, he begs
leave to state, in opposition to such malevolent rumour, that he has finished
many hundreds in this part of the World and West Indies, and never yet had one
complaint, though some have been executed upward of 30 years. Those who prefer
it, however, can have their portraits made in oil, equally correct in point of

You will, I imagine, have no objection
to inserting the following, as it is signed with my name. However severe it
may appear, I assure you it is [illegible] just, and indeed to what hereafter
may come; as I have a pretty good Book of [illegible] Negroes, bottles of Rum,
&c. &c. to bring up the rear, if necessary. Yours, &c. D. P. Simon

Mr. T. Lawrence,
Sir - I think it my duty to let you know
that the base manner in which you [illegible - four or five words] I am
perfectly sensible to. You told me yesterday, that you had made an arrangement
with Mrs. [? - H?]arriet [illegible] to be [illegible - five words]; that you
would pay Catharine [?]rovallo in Barbados what you justly owe to her;
[illegible] you had provided for the [illegible] of Sally Lawrence her
character; but how surprised was I to be convinced that the greatest part, if
not the whole, [illegible - 4-5 words] of which I have indisputable proof, and
more than that, which will do you much dishonour. I have [illegible - 3-4
words] you, that, [illegible] I have resigned the Executorship of Sally
Lawrence's Will, I am first Guardian of her Children. You have acted as
Executor, and I have deigned to call you to account, agreeably to that will
[becomes increasingly illegible] . . . I am, Sir, Yours,
D. P. Simon.

Mr. Cumins's bag arrived here this
morning from Barbados, with island papers to the 14th July inclusive, and our
London papers to the 7th June. The first June mail was detained for want of a
boat to bring it here.
His Excellency General and Governor
Montgomerie arrived at Government House on Thursday last.
The Hon. Court of Justice adjourned this
day to the 24th of August.
About a fortnight ago, fifteen negroes
arrived at Pomeroon, who had made their escape from Angesturas. We are
informed that there of these belong to the House of M'Bean and Co., five to
Mrs. Dowgin, of Stabroek, and one to Dr. Cox; the owners of the remainder are
not yet known.
We are sorry to find that Mr. Campbell,
formerly a Clerk in the above mentioned Mercantile House, is still suffering
all the hardships of imprisonment, and its attendant horrors, in Oronoque. He
had twice attempted to make his escape from Angesturas; but being each time
intercepted by the Spaniards, is at present confined in irons, together with
those faithful negroes who chose to share his fate.
The negroes [sic] who have at various
times deserted from these colonies are treated very ill there; and it is firmly
believed, so painful is their situation, that if they could [illegible] assured
of no punishment being [illegible] their return, they would attempt every means
to endeavour to effect it. There are said to be [illegible] nearly 50 at
Angesturas belonging only to one Gentleman of Essequebo.
Every account from this quarter
corroborates the opinion long since entertained, that nothing would be more
easy than for a British force to obtain possession of it. Angesturas is beyond
a doubt destitute of all regular means of defence, it would therefore only be a
coup de main even for a British privateer to sail up the Oronoque, and five
them some natural impress ion of the force of the British flag.
Besides the undeniably great saving
which the Merchant and Planters of these Colonies would experience from such a
conquest, we submit that the simply proving to the black population of the
country, what a ridiculous speculation it is to leave their good homes in
search of better among the Spaniards, would be attended with the most
