LORD ANGLESEY TO SIR JOS. WILLIAMSON, RESPECTING CONTEMPLATED CHANGES IN REGULATIONS.



CAL. STATE PAPERS, AM. & W. I., 1677-1680, p. 36

        91.  Lord Anglesey to Secretary Sir Joseph Williamson. Indisposition prevented his going to the Council. Desires him to move for directions to be sent to Newfoundland by the first shipping for all things to continue in that Plantation as they are till His Majesty, upon full consideration, shall settle affairs there as he shall judge best. Several ships from the West have gone already, and others go daily who may disturb affairs there. If orders be not sent to prevent mischief we shall run great hazard to lose that country with the trade and give it up entirely to the French, which he hopes Williamson will prevent by speeding away with orders, the agent attending here from that country. 1 p. (Col. Papers, Vol. XXXIX., No. 46.)
