Letter from Joseph Banks to Matthew Flinders (4 of 7) (FLI01) Page 1

                                                            Soho Square
                                                            April 10 1803

My dear Sir

                                            We all Receivd [sic] infinite
Satisfaction on the Receipt of your Letters announcing
the Succeƒs of the first part of your undertaking & we
Gave you much Credit for the very Gallant &
succeƒsfull [sic] manner in which you have executed the
what I conceive to be the most dificult [sic] part of your
Task, the S. West part of the Land.
                              By what I can learn the French Captains
will not be formidable Rivals to you, they seem to have
been much afraid of the Land on all occasions, & to
have miƒsed a very many of the openings you have
Anchord [sic] in; I judge this from a slight Publication
made by the French of a letter from Riedle their
Gardiner [sic], who Complains heavyly [sic] of having been so
seldom brought into harbor or in ^ any way empowerd [sic]
to visit the Shore.
