Mr Jones in a short time after leaving us going for Frederica, I thought I could have no better opportunity of writing than by him, as I did, to M Francis Moore, by advice of my Assistants, whom I acquainted with the Affair, proposed it to him to take it upon him; not doubting moreover but M Jones would con fer with him thereon, facilitate the matter, in case he found him scrupulous: but it so happend yt in his way thither, he met M Moore going in all hast Express for Charles Town to acquaint the Government there with the Expectations his Excellence was under, of the Spaniards invad ing the Colony (which accordingly soon came to pass) and he deliverd him my letter en pas sant.
