Dear Madam

        I conclude that you have receivd [sic]
a Letter from Capt Flinders by the way of America
the one alluded to in yours of the French Letter
inclosd [sic] in yours which I return, I have one
which came to hand by yesterdays Post & Note
my Friend your husband to be in good health
Tho no time has yet been fixd [sic] upon by the
General for obeying the orders he has receivd [sic]
Respecting his Liberation
        I cannot I confeƒs attribute the
disobedience to orders which the General has
been guilty of to any Cause but that of Cowardice
he suspects that your husband is able to give
such information to his brother officers in India
as might enable them to attack the Island with
advantage & has therefore resolvd [sic] not to let
him proceed to any place where he has any
likelihood of seeing any of them soon
