Urging funher my more iaipurtant friainfts upoii Government would be vainly addressed lo auy person, who can really ihiok (hat a former itfusal of mere rank, under circumstances so widely difTrreiit, or the most express waving of such pretensions, if thai bail hecu the case, fiiruislica the slightcit colour for the answer I have received 10 the tenders 1 have now made of my services.

(Kigned) G. P. To his Royal Highness the Dute of York;. Horse Guards, October 13, 1803. Dear Brotiif.r-I hare nceived your Idler ihis morning, and am sorry to finil that you think that 1 have misconceived the ineauing of your first letter, the whole tenor nf wfateh, and the military promotion which give rise lo it, led me naturally to suppose your dtp ire was, that I should apply to his .Majesty in my uiBeial capacity, lo give you military rank, to which ini.ght be ailached the idea uf subsequent contmnnd. That I fuund myself nnder the necessity of declining, in obedience 10 his Majesty's pointed orders, as I explained to you in my lettur of tbe 61b inslnnl. But from your letter of to-day, 1 am to uuderstaud that your object is not military rank, but ihat a post should be allotted to you, upon zho preaeut emergency, suitable to your situation iu the stale. This I-conceive to bv purely n political consideration, and as sueb totally out of wy dupaitmeut; nud as 1 bare must carefully avoided, ut alt liincc, and under all circumstances, ever interfering in any political points, 1 most hope that you will not csll upon lae to deviate from the princiiUes by which 1 have been invariably guverufd. Believe me, my ilear Brother, Your most aH^.-clionate Brother, (Mgiied) FREDERICK. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Carltun-IIousc, Oclober 14^1803. Mr dear Brother-It rauuot but be painful to me to be reduced lo the necessity of lurther explanation on a sub-jf-ct wbioli it was my earnest wi~h to have closed, and which wns of so clear and ^listi.'ict a iifilure as, in my bumble judg-mcut, tu have precluded the possibility of either doubt or misunderstanding. Surely there must some sirange fatality obscure my lang�age in statement, or leave me somewhat deficient in the powers of explanaliuo, when it can lead your mind, my dear brother, lo such a palpable misconstructiou (for far ije il from me tu fancy il wilful) of my nieaniug, as lo suppose for a moment 1 had unconnected my object with efficient miUtttriirank,:inA ua-.i.sferied it entirely to tiie view of a political atution, when you venture to tell me, " my object is not military rank, hut that a post should be allot-led 10 me, upon the prcsenf emergency, suitable to my si-lualtou in the Stale." Upon v.-tial grouud you hazard such OK aisertiun, or upon wli.il piii.eipUs you can draw such an lufeicnce, I am utterly at a 1 jss to dctcrraine. For 1 defy the most skilful logician, iu torturing Uie English language, lo a|iply with fairnats surh n cons'.ruBtion lo any word or phrase of mine, rontaine.! i!i any one uf the i,Iters 1 have ever written on this, to me, most interesting subject.
