LORD DARTMOUTH TO GOVERNOR CARLETON.
CAN. ARCH. Q 11, p. 141.
Whitehall, 2nd June, 1775.
The King having thought fit to authorize you to make such arrangements respecting the fisheries upon the Labrador Coast as without prejudice to the just Rights of the Canadians may encourage the Ship Fisheries of this Kingdom; I cannot take any other step upon the memorial of which I transmit you a copy, than to recommend Mr. Burgess's undertaking to your attention and to desire that he may receive such countenance and protection in it, as shall correspond with the rules you may think fit to adopt, for the better ordering and governing the fisheries and possessions on that coast.
I am, &c.,
Endorsed:—Draught to Govr. Carleton.
Whitehall 2d. June, 1775.
