LONDON. Letter from Li/Son, July 23, N.S, � A few Days fines the Conrt received from Goa, the ] * News of the Death of Don Louis de Menefes, Marqais < de Loarical, and Vice Roy of the Indies. It is impoffi-� ble for a Subjeft to be more regretted by his Matters than � this great Man is, who with an uncommon Difinterefted -� nefs, united in his Perfon all the Qualities requifite in a * Soldier, a Statefman, and a Civil Magiftrate. This � Nobleman was for the fecond Time made Vice-Roy of 1 the Indies, in 1740 ; having before been found worthy � of that high Poft in 1717, tho' he was then but in his ' 28th Year. He diftinguilhed himfelf in the Time of the ' laft grand Confederacy, efpecially in raifmg the Blockade � of Campo Major in the Year 1712, by throwing him-1 felf into the Town with 500 Grenadiers, tho' it was ' blocked up fo very dole. Upon his firft Arrival in his 1 Government he fignalized himfelf by taking feveral * Towns from the Arabians, and afterwards by three Sea-� Fights, in which he totally ruined the Enemy's Naval-� Power. By the wife Regulations he made for the Admi-1 niftration of Juftice and the Management of the Finan-' ces he was both beloved and feared ; and thefe Regula-� tions were fo well liked by the Court and the People ' that they have fince been pafTed into Laws. The Term ' of his Government being expired, he embarked in order ' to return to Portugal, but had the ill Fortune to fall into * the Hands of fome Free Booters, who fet him afhore at ' the Ifle of Bourbon, from whence he found Means to get ' on board a Ship belonging to the India-Company, and 4 fo reached his Native Country ag the Juftices of the Peace Commiffioneis of Sopply, and other Gentlemen of that County have, at their own Expence, rais'd a Company of 30 Men for preventing Thefts, Robberies,and preferving the Peace of the Country.
