Copy extract of a letter from Gen. Sir Guy Carleton to Maj-Gen. Archibald Campbell replying to a letter received and reporting that he has issued orders for troops to be sent to Jamaica as soon as the evacuation of Charlestown is completed, requesting that as this leaves other areas potentially in danger there should be a delay in the sending of any troops from Jamaica to the Spanish Main, and also asking that some of the troops he is sending might be sent in due course 'to the Northward' along with any weak and sickly regiments currently in Jamaica.
