Intrusted with powers, that but too often ex [mutilated] ed
harshly produce discontent, and generate digust [mutilated] ith
the naval service, by injuring the commerce th[mutilated] are
meant to protect; that part of the community wh[mutilated]re
concerned in the shipping in this port, wish me to ex[mutilated]
on their part, how deeply they feel, by our ex[mutilated]
that a systematic propriety of conduct, supported by th[mutilated]
correct pinciples, and embellished by suavity of t[mutilated]
and the most gentlemanly manners, can conduce to re[mutilated]
the necessity that the war occasions, for seamen so[mutilated]
navy with the interest, and even with the convenien[mutilated]
the trade; both of which are but too often sacrificed [mutilated]
I am farther commissioned, my dear Sir! to pr[mutilated]
for you, such token of their high respect and regar[mutilated]
may be most gratifying to your wishes; for which pu[mutilated]
I hold One Hundred Johannes, which I shall, w[mutilated]
first convenience, remit to my much respected f[mutilated]
Mr. James Baillie, of Bedford-Square, [mutilated]
to signify, through me, or by direct communicatin,[mutilated]
objects of its appropriation.
If, my dear Sir, I fail in conveying to you the [mutilated]
expression of good-will of this whole commu[mutilated]
shall still fall more particularly short in express[mutilated]
grateful sense I feel in being honoured with you indi[mutilated]
and intimate friendship, while the public serv[mutilated]
detained you among us. I shall look back on the[mutilated]
[illegible] a mixture of pleasure and regret, as I trust [mutilated]
forward, with a full hope of its permanency, [mutilated]
ever we may happen to be thrown; being, with [mutilated]
sentiment of respect and regard,
My dear Sir!

manner in which they are desirous of having the[mutilated]

In the performance of my public duties, it is [mutilated]

so far succeeded as to have gained the [mutilated]
esteem of His Excellency the Governor, and the [mutilated]
respectable inhabitants of these Colonies; the kind[mutilated]
handsome token of whose approbation I accept with [mutilated]

Allow me now, my dear Sir, to address myself to you individually, and to assure you, that, if any thing could add to the gratification I feel in thus receiving the general expression of the good-will of this whole community, it is the circumstance of these Gentlemen having deputed you (who have honoured me with your intimate friendship, which I so duly appreciate, and which will ever be to me a source of pleasure) to communicate their flattering sense of my conduct.
Accept, my dear Sir, my heartfelt and grateful acknowledgments for all your kind attention to me, and my unfeigned and sincere wishes for every happiness to attend you.
In the hope that we may, ere long, meet in a mor favoured clime,
I remain, my dear Sir"
