(123) Particularly, One of the Persons alluded to (whose unjust Claims on Government DesBarres conceived it to be his Duty to reist, and who appeared to enjoy much unmerited Attention in the Public Offices, and made public boast of confidential Communications to him, and of his Knowledge, of the adverse Disposition of His Majesty's Ministers towards DesBarres) occasioned an Arbitration which lasted nearly Two Years And upon Conclusion of it, the Arbitrators Sir William Dolben, Sir Herbert Mackworth, Barts. and Philip Sanfon, Martin Petrie, George Bainbridge, Esquires, thought it incumbent on them, to address the following Representations to Treasury (App. B. 223.) viz.

[Address?] to the Lords [of?] Treasury from the Arbitrators - with their Opinion on the Conduct of Lt Gov DesBarres, and seeking their Lordship to take up the consideration of his case.

 

                                                    "Abingdon Street, 7th September, 1791

"I AM desired by my Brethren the Arbitrators on the Case of Lieutenant Governor DesBarres (for he has been constantly informed that he is only suspended from the Exercise of his Government during the Examination of his Conduct which has been arraigned, and not superseded) to put into your Hands the enclosed Letter, requesting you would communicate the same to Mr. Pitt, and lay it before the Lords of the Treasury, humbly, but earnestly, entreating their Lordships immediate Consideration of the Subject; it being of the most decided Consequence to the Honour and Fortunes of Mr. DesBarres, as well as Justice to him and the Public, as a Man holding so high and responsible a Character, that his Conduct should without delay be investigated, the Charges against him be known to him (which has not yet Officially been dune) his Defence heard, secret Calumnies, if any, refuted, and Judgment given from open Evidence and Public Documents, long since produced into the proper Office, &c.

Charles Long, Esq.                                                              W. DOLBEN
