16th February 1812: Robert Baker and Nathaniel Conant to Home Office

Feb. 16 1812
8 a.m.


Saturday night having always been looked to as a time of disturbance we have delayed till this hour to report to you the state of quiet here, for the opportunity of giving you the latest Information — And we have the pleasure to say that no disturbances have occurred since our last in any part of the town or country so far as we are able to learn.

We inclose the Advertisement of a Meeting to be holden tomorrow — of a kind in our apprehension not very desirable, but from which some of the best disposed and best judging persons here seem to augur nothing very alarming. We shall hope to inform you on Monday Evening of the result, so far as it transpires, of this meeting.

We are Sir [etc.]

Bob Baker
N. Conant

This letter can be found at HO 42/120. This the last letter from Conant & Baker that I have found in the 42 division of Home Office papers.
