Agent for the same from the Government of Martinico. At the earliest meeting of our Legislature I promise your Excellency, I shall interest myself on the subject of your Letter by laying the same before them; and urging the most speedy payment of a debt, contracted by the State in the time of her distress, for those articles of defence, which the Government of Martinico most generously furnished her.

I have the honour, &c.,
ALEX. MARTIN.
