Dear Sir/

I regret, not having had the pleasure of seeing you when you favored me by calling Your kindness in offering me your Sea Stores now at Corfu is much apreciated [sic] I assure you, but for the present it is not my intention to return there, or you well know how very welcome, and convenient your good things would prove to me.

The Vessel was to go back to the Islands, on the 10th instant from Ancona with Mr Grant, the schemer of the Undertaking, but I apprehend that Government will not be able to keep the Vessel as they encourage [sic] -

Mr Gordon, I am informed, has gone to Napoli de Romania, & is likely to be blockaded there by the Turkish Army - [illegible]

As frequent opportunities for correspondence with the Islands are offered me, if in any thing you can make me serviceable to you there, I shall be most happy remaining

Dear Sir Yours most obliged & truly
W. H. Sharp.
