Lestock wrote a letter from Jamaica
1732-11-21 - Jamaica

Sir Chaloner Ogle was appointed commander-in-chief at Jamaica instead of Lestock, and a letter was written ordering Lestock to strike his flag and return to Britain. No reason was given. Lestock was dismayed by this snub, writing in a letter from Port Royal on 21 November:

My affair being without precedent I cannot say much, but such a fate as I have met with is far worse than death, many particulars of which I doubt not will be heard from me when I shall be able to present myself to my lords of the admiralty
