Captain Brace is not being promoted (Letter, 1816)
« on: Thursday 27 August 20 08:57 BST (UK) »

Someone needs to tell him that he is not getting promoted. I've got the following, but am struggling with the bracketed part...

"Lord Melville informed the Board that he would answer by a private letter [in a applice to the sense of feel] which had been addressed to him individually by Captain Brace.

Thanks horselydown86

That makes sense. It would make it -

"Lord Melville informed the Board that he would answer by a private letter an application to the same [of feel] which had been addressed to him individually by Captain Brace.
