LORD G. GERMAIN TO LORDS OF TREASURY.

C.O. RECORDS 1/150, p. 233/5.
Whitehall, 9th July 1778.   

MY LORDS,
      I inclose to your Lordships Copy of a Petition to me from the Merchants concerned in the Fisheries on the Coast of Labrador on behalf of themselves and their correspondents in Canada setting forth the great want of a Superintendant upon the said Coast, which I have laid before the King; and His Majesty conceiving that a Lieut. Governor or Superintendant of the Fisheries on the said Coast would be of equal utility there, as at the Bay of Gaspée, is graciously pleased to consent to the Prayer of the said Petition and your Lordships will be pleased to receive His Majesty's further pleasure for making such allowance upon the Quebec estimate for a Superintendant of the Fisheries on the Coast of Labrador as your Lordships shall think proper.

I am &c.,                        

(Signed)    GEO. GERMAIN.  
(No enclosure.)
