Both documents 1p., folio. Both in good condition, on lightly-aged laid paper, the first with pin-holes from its attachment to another item. The first letter relates to 'the Expences incurred in constructing the Royal Military Canal', with reference to a 'Letter from Sir B[rook]. Watson Bt' and 'Lieut. Col. Brown's Accounts for expenditure'. The second letter again deals with communications from Watson and Brown, the latter 'enclosing Accounts & Vouchers for the Expenditure on the Royal Military Canal & Rampart'. The Royal Military Canal, conceived by Lieutenant-Colonel John Brown as a defence against invasion, runs for 28 miles between Seabrook near Folkestone and Cliff End near Hastings. In mid-1805, due to the slow progress of the work, the contractors and consultant engineer John Rennie had been dismissed and replaced by the Quartermaster-General’s department with Brown in command.
