Date26 May 1801

Content DescriptionThanks Hawkesbury for his help over his [the writer's] previous applications pertaining to ships and the bills written from Germany; requests Hawkesbury's favour respecting the provision to be made for several persons he employed as a result of instructions he received from Lord Grenville in Feb. 1795; explains that the last letter Mr Hammond wrote to him, by Lord Grenville order, was in Dec. 1799, after the expedition to Holland had been abandoned; refers Hawkesbury particularly to this letter as it shows that the intention of the government was to reward those he [the writer] employed and to continue the correspondence they were engaged in.

From the time of this letter, the provisions he expected were delayed, despite his applications on behalf of these persons who he felt were entitled to the government's support; explains that circumstances since have meant that the expenses he was to have been paid were considerably reduced; applies to Hawkesbury as he wishes only to get the men who have given their service rewarded properly; refers Hawkesbury to the list of people Hammond has who he feels should be rewarded; explains that these men have served their country and the House of Orange loyally.
