 Lord Byron, at Carnarvon, to Sir John Owen, Governor of Conway. A letter received that morning about the condition of Ruthin Castle stops his journey to Conway. He sent orders to Colonel Vane to march back out of Merionethshire with all the speed he can. The foot must then be divided between the two garrisons of Conway and Caernarvon. Because Owen has part of Little’s men already, Byron will send the rest to him, and likewise some horse. Meantime all possible means must be used to bring in provisions as well for horse as foot wherein the writer desires Owen to consult with Archbishop Williams. The writer’s cousin, Winne, must likewise be dealt with either by fair or foul means. Lord Byron, at Carnarvon, to Sir John Owen, Governor of Conway.
