                                                                          Cape Breton 
                                                                          Sydney 28th. October 1786.

Sir,

          The Designes meditated by the turbulent people in the Government in Concurrence with many unjustifiable Proceedings of Others to impede the Settlement of this valuable Island and to defeat or check the Growth of its rising Importance and great National Utility and Advantage, have occasioned very serious Difficulties and Embarrassments, and, by combined Efforts to prevent the Importation of Provisions for the Existence of His Majesty Subjects therein, have, in Order to effect some relief, compelled me to make over my Estate in Nova Scotia as well as the Plate and Impressions of my Work the Produce of more than Twenty years incessant anxiety and Labour.

     These Plates and Impressions are made over to Mr Sparrow (a Merchant of Halifax) in Security for Payment of Provisions.

Philip Stephens, Esqr.    

      Provisions supplied by him at my request and it is agreed that he shall, on his Arrival in England wait upon you, and the Board of Admiralty humbly to propose to their Lordships a Preference for the Consideration of five thousand Pounds.

     I beg leave therefore to entreat and I fervently hope that thro' your kind representation of the Matter their Lordships may be pleased to order the same to be kept at their own immediate Disposal for the Use and Benefit of His Majesty's Royal service.

     I have the Honor to be with great Regard

                                 Sir                                                          

                                                                         Your most obedient and
                                                                         most humble servant

                                                                         J F W DesBarres
