of the attack made upon Falklands Ifland by the we HOW proceed to lay before them the negociation con iequent Letter from Harris tc Lord Vifcount Mr 23 THE following fact was brought from Bue nos Ayres to by the Nicholas de fetting that in confequence of two of his Catholic Majcftys veffcls having touched at Port Egmont in the month of and finding it occupied by the who not only refuted to evacuate the but even denied them a fquadron of five with three hundred men of the regiment of the old battalion of Buenos were deitmcd to fail from thence the 6th of May under the command of dc with orders to diflodge the Engliih eftablifnment It has been out of my power as yet to gather any further lights on this iub except that fome people thinlc that their getting to Port Egmont is preca as the feafon was fo far advanced when they This letter was received at Lord Weymouths office on the loth of Capy of a Letter from Lord Vifcount Weymouth to Sent by The Spanifh Ambaflador here having informed that he had good reafon to believe his Catholic Majcftys Governor of Buenos Ayres has taken upon him to make ufe of in order to difpoflefs the EnglUhof their fettlement at Port Eonont in Falklands iflands that he was direfted to make this to prevent the bad con fequences which might arife from it coming through other and expreffing his that whatever the event at Port Egmont might in confequence of a ftep of the taken without any particular inllruftion from liis Catholic it might not be productive of raeafures at this court dangerous to good underftanding which at prefent fubfifts between the two I told his that if his apprehenfions of an exercife of on the part of the Governor of Buenos Ayres were well it was difficult fee how the fatal confequenccs of fucha ftep could be avoided by any thing that was left us to I alfo that I knew his inftruc tions to the officer who made the fettlement at Port and to Aofc who have fuccecdedhim in that to warn the of other powcn if any focb were found iherc to withdraw themfelves from thence but that I knew that tnofe the fame time direct that officer to make a joint fettlement with the fubjeftfcpf any European powers he might find

jeftys orders to proceed upon this left an opening which made me not defpair of feeing this matter without recourfe to ex i knesy his Majeftys inclinations would induce him to avoid as far as honour will but that this depended entirely upon his Catholic I therefore afked his Excel if he was ordered to the conduct of Buccareili His thathe had no inltrucrJons from his court on that head and cppld give no anfwer to that without hearing again from In the mean time he ex preiled himfelf in the moft conciliating and deprecated any rclblutions or mealures which might involve two crowns in war upon this ac You may eafily imagine what my orders when I had rhe honour of reportmg to the King the mbftance of this In I ap pointed a meeting with the Spanifh and told that I had his Mreftys command to

his Majefty the great l concern and not only becaufe it at fo deeply the dignity of his but alfo becaufe it was of a nature which put it out of his power to apply fuch a remedy as he wifhed that this inadvertent meafure was the more as it happened in a moment when the two courts had been profufe in their proteftations of friendfhip the one towards the other and that nothing but the fincere defire his Majefty had of maintaining the public and of mewing his cordial af fection to his Catholic could prevent its difturbing the peace of Esrope that as his Majefty had nothing fo much af heart as thefe two had orders to repeat to his Excel lency what had already been faid to Prince Maf in and to as the only means of preventing fatal that his Catholic Majefty fhould difavow the proceed ings of
