Anex'd, You have a Copy of my last, to w'ch be refer'd. This Dominion has this Year begun raising of Indigo, and they are inform'd So. Carolina has aplied home to prevent 'em or lay 'em under some Difficulties. The Acco't thereof I think is too premature, or indeed, can I think they will make any Solicitat'ns on the Subject, as they may be sure his M'j'ty or the Ministry will restrain any of the Subjects from making the most of their Plantat'ns. If nothing perspires of their intentions as above, you are to make no use of the L're, but if any Aplications made to the Prejudice of the People here, Yo. are to make use of all the Arguments and Interest You can to defeat it, and write to the Council what may be done therein. I rem'n, w'th sincere Respects,
P. S.—I wish You many happy new Years.
