Adventure, sloop, at Plymouth, 22 May, 1772.


I have received your letter of the 16th past, and in conformity to their Lordships' directions inclose herein the observations of the qualities on his Majesty's sloop under my command on her passage from the river.

The weather being in general calm, we had few opportunitys of making observations on her sailing, but this the opinion of my officers and self that she is a vessel fit for the intended voyage, and will answer every purpose therein.

I am, &c.,

Tob's Furneaux.
