77 | To Lord Barrington

    Boston Oct 20th. 1761

    My Lord

    The Cover of this encloses the duplicate of a Letter I wrote to your Lordship on the 27th of Sepbr. the day after I recd. your favor of the 11th of July:354 the Original is on board the General Wall packet boat, which sailed from NYork

    The time between my receiveing your Lordships Letter & dispatching my Answer to it would not afford an oppertunity of seeing Mr. Pemberton But upon my talking with him soon after & observing to him that possibly Mr. Pitt may expect a more formal signification of his consent, than what his letter contained, it was agreed to transmit to your Lordship a duplicate of the agreement with an addition thereto signifying Mr. Pembertons still adhering thereto This I now enclose & must now conclude this, uncertain whether I shall be able to write to your Lordship on other Subjects by the same ship which waites only for wind. I am with great respect

    My Lord your Lordships

    Rt honble Lord Vist. Barrington
