It was my first care to see that tha .nece.s.'sary supplies si-iould be safely conveyed to vthe Governor.   1 had the inexpressible satisfactioti of conveying the most essential article.sto (il acta, and of communicating to his Serene Highness the Governor (oir the breach battery, which he never qaits) the assurance of further support to anye.vtent ^vilhin my power, for the maintenance of that imporfant fortress liither, to so long preserved by his intrepidity and example.
