Letter from Sir Joseph Banks to Ann Flinders (1 of 9) (FLI26) Page 3

{Mercy} Prisoner will be taken by us & we can have
no doubt that an exchange of Prisoners in the East
Indies will immediately take place.
        I am as anxious to see your
Gallant & Excellent husband as any of his best
friends can be, he has done much since he
was employd [sic] in his last expedition to increase
my Regard for him & nothing which can in any
degree diminish it
        His Recent Misfortune is one
of the Calamities of war which you & I must bear
with as much patience as we can muster, his
absence for some time is unavoidable but
shall have the more pleasure in seeing his
Return & I can not help hoping & almost
expecting that we shall have that good fortune
ere long
                  I am Madam
            your Obedient Hble Servt
                  Js: Banks
