Boreas, January 23 1787

I have the Honor of acquainting
Your Royal High Higness, that in consequence of a Letter
which I have this day received from Lieutenant
Isaac Schomberg 1st Lieutenant of His Majestys Ship
Pegasus under your Command, I have thought proper to order him under an Arrest, and beg
that you will grant him such indulgencies, or
lay such restrictions on him during his Arrest
as his behaviour shall appear to you to deserve,

I have the honor to be
Your Royal Highness’s
Most Obedient
Humble Servant
Horatio Nelson

His Royal Highness
Prince William Henry
Captain of His Majestys
Ship Pegasus (A copy)
