Sir James Graham to John Grey Esqr 14th Jany 1833 Promulgation of his intended Appt

Copy Private

Admiralty 14th January 1833

Dear Sir

	I am sorry that by any indiscretion your appointment has transpired prematurely, but I entirely acquit You of that indiscretion, and hope that you will suffer neither inconvenience nor annoyance from the disclosure.

	The course to be adopted by you is not to deny or to confirm the statement, but remain perfectly quiet, while the Transfer is in progress under the care of Mr Hooper and subject to his responsibility; and you had better answer the application made to you for appointments by referring the applicants to the Trustees of Greenwich Hospital for their answer.

	Allow me to take this opportunity of expressing my entire satisfaction at your acceptance of the Office of Receiver, and the pleasure which I feel, in having placed in this important Station a Gentleman of your attainments and high character.

	I have the honor to be, etc

		/signed/ JRG Graham

John Grey Esqr
