1829 (Aug 13) entire headed "Ship Georgianna" from an officer to his Lieut-General father in Wiltshire "Per Ship Pyramus", fine strike of the small oval 'HOBART TOWN/VDL' h/s, British 'INDIA LETTER/FALMOUTH' boxed b/s & superb 'SALISBURY/JA24/1830' arrival b/s, rated "1/11", forwarded to Devon. [The son now fears being "...put on half-pay...unless strong interest is made to have me promoted..." Then, pushing his luck, "I should like to be promoted into a Regiment stationed either in this place, The Cape of Good Hope or the Mauritius"]

The begging letters apparently failed to do the trick. In 1831 Slade retired from the army & headed for NSW where he was appointed Superintendent of the Convict Barracks at Hyde Park. In 1834, he was forced to resign over his brutal treatment of convicts.
