No. IV.-Copy of Letter from John Fordyce, Esq. to the Secretary to the Board of Taxes; dated 15th June 1803.-Sir, In consequence of your letter, dated 28th ult., written under the direction of the commissioners for the affairs of taxes, desiring me to send a copy of the bond of the executors of the estate of the river Antoine, to pay three-fourth parts of the value of the produce of that estate into the exchequer until the whole of my debt, and that of Messrs. Fergusson and Murdock, late agents for my office, should be fully paid, if that bond be in my possession; or acquaint them with whom it is deposited, in order that it may be seen whether the same is forfeited, and whether it may be proper to institute any proceedings for the penalty, I have the honour to acquaint you, that the obligation granted to the trustees for the treasury by those executors was in the form of a missive, not a bond, and that it never was given to me by the trustees, nor is in my hands; and Mr. C. Fergusson assures me that it is not in his possession. If the obligation, however, which seems to have been mislaid, should not be found, it will make no difference in the security, the executors having no wish or intention to avoid the fulfilment of the conditions in it, which they do not conceive that they have hitherto in any man

ner transgressed.-In my letter to Mr. Long, referred to in that which I have now received from you, and in another to the same gentleman, dated 31st March 1799, in which the securities given to the trustees for the treasury are more particularly described, Į mentioned my expectation, that "the river "Antoine estate, which had been wasted during the insurrection, having been re established, would after that time be as "< productive as it formerly was; and that if the then prices of sugar should con"tinue, the debts upon it prior to mine (being the sums advanced by the consignees) would be discharged by the crops of the subsequent year, in which case "not only would the value of three-fourth
