[?] [?] [?] [?] ][?] [?] Island. I am a Creditor also of near five thousand Pounds for Provisions, Stores, Lumber and Cash Supplied to Governor DesBarres for the use of the Settlement which I was induced to advance upon the full Reliance that this High Commission which [is?] held from His Majesty would be a Sufficient warrant for my doings: But I unfortunately perceive that I have to risk the propriety of that Gentleman's conduct, which appears at present by my holding of his Bills to the amount of near Five thousand Pounds under protest for non payment ~ I hope and Trust My Lord that the Creditors of that Government will not be permitted to suffer as their reliance was founded in the great Confidence Implied in the Trust His Majesty was pleased to repose in him, and who were not to be Supposed to be Judges of the limits of his Orders.

I have the Honor to be

          My Lord
Your Lordships - most Obedt
     And Devoted Humbl SerC
