“ The Deputy Governor represented to the Committtee that as affairs were then situated, it probably would not be long before peace is concluded. It was therefore expedient for the Company to lay claim to the debt due to them from the French, and also to use their endeavours that the limits between the Company and the French be settled. This was agreed to.”
