William Blathwayt to Thomas Harley in reply to the latter's letter of Oct. 5 inst., supra, p. 493, as to the possibility of applying any money of her Majesty's revenues in Nova Scotia or other Government on the [American] Continent in ease of the Garrison of Annapolis. In answer thereto I humbly report that Nova Scotia, where the fort [of Annapolis] lies (first granted to the Earl of Stirling, a peer of Scotland, by patent under the seal of Scotland), being at present a desolate country can by no ways supply the wants of that Garrison. Nor has any of the Colonies of New England any disposable money of her Majesty's revenues to be made use of on the present occasion [of the Expedition to Canada] nor any other Government on the Continent except her Majesty's quit rents of Virginia, which for the late Expedition "and latter orders from her Majesty" have been anticipated for at least two years to come; as may appear by an account laid before my Lord Treasurer some days past of her Majesty's revenue not only on the Continent [of America] but in all the British Dominions in America.
And I pray you at the same time to represent to my Lord Treasurer that Annapolis Royal (so named last year by General Nicholson, being formerly called Port Royal), being a small fort of earth upon a ditch and other little works, was by the help of some mariners from her Majesty's ships and of some militia from New England surrendered to that General after a short resistance and that the same fort had been for some years past taken by Sir William Phips, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay, without any aid from England. And being chiefly useful for protecting of fishing of that Colony [of Massachusetts Bay] was maintained at the sole charge of that Government (to which it lies nearest on the opposite side of the Bay) until retaken by the French and deserted by the English. So that it may perhaps fall under the consideration [of my Lord] whether the said Colony may not be obliged hereafter to take that charge upon themselves: towards which they will likewise have the help of one or more ships of war constantly remaining in the neighbourhood for the service of the Government; though at present it is very certain that the Expedition to Canada by the sending considerable Forces from New England by land and their returning home under the present circumstances may have brought those parts into great necessities. All which may be further explained, if thought necessary, upon my return to London next week. Out Letters (Plantation Auditor) III, pp. 68–9.
Oct. 13. William Lowndes to the Sub Governor of the South Sea Company. The Lord Treasurer desires you to acquaint the Court of Directors of the South Sea Company that he approves of their choice of Robert Knight to be Receiver of the present subscriptions to the said Corporation and that he has given security to my Lord's good liking. Out Letters (General) XX, p. 27.
