July 4.2,031. William Lord Willoughby to ?. On the 6th February, a man-of-war arrived, with letters from Mons. de la Barre; only a trick, in my opinion, to help his old spy. This pert Monsieur was not willing to do his duty to the King's flag, but expecting some such thing, I gave orders at the fort to make him strike, or strike him. The Monsieur stood two shots through him. They don't want a pilot, for their spy, who was on board, knows the harbour as well as I do. Signed, W. Willoughby. Annexed,
2,031. I. Copies of orders to the French vessels as to salutes to the navy and forts of England. Two short extracts. French. 1 p. [Col. Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 70, 70I.]
