MY LORD, BEING convinced that your Ideas of Justice and Humanity are not confined to one Race of Men, I have endeavoured to lead you to the Indian Coast. My Intention is not to cause that Anguish in your Bosom which powerless Compassion ever gives: yet, my Vanity is flattered, when I but fancy that Your Lordship feels as I do.
With the highest Reverence, I am, My Lord Your Lordship's much obliged, And obedient Servant, ANN YEARSLEY.
