Thorpe near Staines. Oct. 15. 1780

Hond: Sir

This morning came a letter from Sam of which what is
on the other leaf is an entire copy verbatim & literative. I send this
by a special messenger to Staines, that there may be no time lost in forwarding
it to you. You will see by the endorsement that I should have
had it eight or nine days ago, if there had not been neglect somewhere.

sure that you are perfectly set to rights again.

upon Jamaica. I am sorry to find in his letter a confirmation of the accounts
we have of the disagreement between Rodney and his Captains: not one
who will either dine with or so much as speak to him: principally on account of
the disgust given by the letter printed in the Gazette for his, and which to
