Charles C Wilson Esq

                   					Government House, Devonport ,  Feb 5, 1824


      I have received your letter of the 3rd, informing me that Mr B has given you instructions to bring an action against me for having used and published certain libellous and malicious expressions to the injury of his character, and which he believes me to have been aware were contrary to the fact.  And also, that previously to carrying this intention into effect, he wishes to give me an opportunity offering any explanation by which such a proceeding may be rendered unnecessary.   Of this opportunity I have no desire to avail myself, and if Mr B should be advised to institute the proceeding, of which you have given me notice, I certainly shall be prepared not to explain, but to justify.

      I am, Sir, etc,

JGL A40/9.
