Letter from the Admiralty to Sir Edward Pellew (FLI03) Page 1


My dear Sir,

      The accompanying Letter
is understood to contain a direction
from the French Government for
the release of Captain Flinders. —
It has already been transmitted
to the Isle of France in Triplicate
but as it may be hoped that the
Veƒsels have been all Captured, you
had better take an opportunity of send-
ing this Copy by a Flag of Truce, provided
you have not heard in the mean time
of Flinders being at liberty.

                    I am, my dear Sir,
Admiralty, –                 Yours very faithfully
30th December 1806           (Signed) Wm Marsden
Sir Edwd Pellew Bart
      &c &c &c                 a true copy
                                    Edward {Hawks Lockwd }
