[p. 115]

... The death of the late Comptroller Brown, and the Established appointment of Brigade major Moncrieffe  at Halifax had caused vacancies at This Council Board ... The Honorable Mr. Sparrow I am informed has never been a Resident at this place, and has left a Letter for me desiring leave of absence for one year, to pursue his affairs in England.

As his attendance at the Council must be and I find always that been uncertain and Accidental, I was induced as well as the Members of Council to consider his Seat as Vacant, but not withstanding my wish to make the Council as complete as possible and thereby obtain the advice and assistance of as many respectable gentlemen Residents here as I can to get as Mr. Sparrow has been unnamed in His Majesty's order to the Governor in Chief, I felt it a [p. 116] a matter of too much Delicacy to appoint an other Gentleman until I had received the Royal Sanctions through your Lordship ...
