Note to Long letter to J.B.

In one I had about June last, with Mr
Hiley Addington by mistake (for my attendance was by at the desire of Mr Vansittart on other business) the only one I have ever
had with him, Mr Long being present, (but as I understood)
by accident, both gentlemen joined
in giving me to understand,
at as they
determined upon at

and expressed by in this
letter entertained preformed
before the writing
of this letter, and
expressed and meant to be expressed
bi it - that the establishment
was to go on
only that the number
of prisoners to be maintained
and built for
was to be reduced from
1000 to 700, and that
I was to have compensation
was to be given
me for the difference.

Mr H. Addington with equal vehemence, upbraided that idea was the joining in upbraiding me, and even with vehemence

spoke from his imagination: from his own imagination:
Mr H. Addington, from Mr Long's: there
the letter is, and I would be thankful if as should I be to any body who would enable me not to see to avoid seeing the direct
reverse. Two events are mentioned: one in which
compensation I am allowed to think of compensation
another in which nothing is said of compensation.
I am to say to on what terms I am willing to
contract to build for half the number that had been from the
on the assurance of which I had been called upon
