The military discontents alone seem to require immediate notice, and some arrangement is now under the consideration of the Court of Directors;" discussing his own position and describing the "very illiberal treatment which I met with in some of the Bengal publications, and the want of confidence, and indeed the indisposition towards me, which appeared in the Committees of Officers in London, where persons were allowed to take the lead, who had no claim whatever to be re-admitted into the Company's service..."; adding that this state of affairs made him glad to withdraw his plan from formal consideration, though copies of it will be sent out and he feels confident that "the sensible and candid Officers in the Company will not consider me their enemy;" mentioning that Major MacDonald will deliver this letter and praising him as the "best European that I have known in the service of a Native Prince;" referring to a proposal by Henry Dundas and leaving the decision about it up to Shore's judgment; adding that "Major MacDonald is as likely a man as I know to succeed."

1 edition published in 1793 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Concerning her postponed voyage to India; saying "I cannot indeed, as I have already said, but be of opinion that you have in present circumstances determin'd aright. War seems now inevitable. On the part of the French it will be an illiberal savage war, suitable to the temper they have manifested for sometime in all their proceedings. I am sure they will look out for Indiamen as Wolves for their prey, and untill at least we were well ascertain'd that the India Navigation was in every stage of it protected by our Men of War, I could not if your children were not in question, advise you to embark."

Concerning the preparations for the trial of Queen Caroline; informing her of his likely arrival in London and his schedule "...to hold a consultation on Tuesday evening and another on Wednesday morning. We have had copies of all the examinations sent to us & they are extremely satisfactory - Indeed all that one sees is favorable - The effects of H.M's intention to attend in person & go in state, are every where extremely satisfactory - I believe the enemy is in considerable confusion - But from all I can learn, if he means to do or propose any thing before the 17th he will wait to the very last moment - probably late on Wednesday - and then perhaps move an adjournment over the Funeral - All I hear, however, is against any thing of the kind being attempted - nous verrons - In the mean time present my humble duty to H.M. & express my condolence on the Duchess of York's death - which I most sincerely lament - for she has not left a better person behind her."
