December 1670

Dec. 20. 2,044. H. Slingesby to Lord Arlington. I send you drafts of Sir Thomas Lynch's despatches, for presentation to the King, and I am to remind you about inserting a clause allowing Sir Thomas Modyford to return to England. An instruction from the Duke of York to Sir Thomas to command the ships that convoy him to Jamaica should be added. I think an instruction should also be added as to striking the flag in case of meeting a French man-of-war. A copy of the late treaty with Spain should also be given to Sir Thomas. 1 p. [Col. Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 83.]
Dec. 20. 2,045. Sir Thomas Lynch to Joseph Williamson. The King said he would send us ammunition. You would do us a great service by getting the order executed in a day or two. Pray also hasten my commission, for till I have that I cannot have the Duke's orders to put my things aboard. Signed, Thomas Lynch. 1 p. [Col. Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 84.]
