20 July 1802, Kingston, Jamaica. States that he last wrote on 9 June, since which he has received JM’s letter of 29 Apr. “I am sorry to find my services here are not entitled to any Compensation, I will hope was the question to come before Congress they would acquiess in my Wishes.” Encloses his account up to 30 June, amounting to £366 13s. 5d. “I am well aware of the rigid economy that may be necessary in the Goverment but at the same time I cannot refrain from expectations when the question is properly laid before the nation in their Legislative Capacity.”
