“…I shall be glad to hear what Reclections will be made
in England on my Assurance in Christ’ning the new Fort
and Town I am now building MARLBOROUGH, a name
which I endeavor to perpetuate in India because it
seems to be forgot in England. Long may this Fort
retain that glorious Name and may it sometimes be said
Govr. Collet it…”
