            I have much pleasure in
informing you that I have at Last Receivd [sic] the
Particulars of Capt Flinders's Present situation
Respecting his Release which are certainly more
Favorable than I expected to have been the Case

Flinders Case to be heard before the Council of State
who immediately decided in Capt Flinders Favor, an
order for his Liberation was therefore signed on
the 11th of March Last & on the 21st 3 Copies of this
order were dispatchd [sic] from Paris in order to be
