My Lord,
I would respectfully request that a communication be forwarded at once to the Admiralty not to allow any stores whatsoever to be received on board the Euphrates except such as may be named by myself with your authority.
In a subsequent letter I will explain further, but I am particularly anxious the above communication should forward immediately.
I have the honor to be
Yr Lordship's most obedient humble Sert
R.C. Moody

I so entirely mistrust Colonel Moody—who is always in a hurry, & frequently wrong—that I will not act on this without yr concurrence. And I recommend you to see him on Monday & obtain an explanation from him of this most obscure Letter. I haveManuscript image written to beg him to call on you abt one o'clock on Monday.
