inconsistent with that Duty which I owe to his Majesty, and which
obliges me in my present Station to do every thing that lies in my
Power for his Majestys Honour, and for the Safety and Defence of

napolis on the first Day of May 1n the twenty fifth year of his Lord-
ships Dominion Annoq Domini 1739
