London 16 Dec 1790.

Thursday

This day between two and three o'Clock in the afternoon, waited upon McKerby, No 26 in Edgeware Road, and, found him at Home with a Lady that I suppose to be his Mother, and upon stating my Business to him he answered that a Parcel of Books was sent from Halifax in July Packet by his Brother, intrusted to the care of a Passenger, who brought it to London and delivered it to McKerby at Mr Sparrow's Request because he lived near him at the West End of the Town. McKerby himself delivered the Parcel to Mr Sparrow who then told him that by the Aid of those Books he should be enabled to settle his Business with Mr Desbarres, or words to that Effect, this was in the month of August - McKerby did not know the Numbers nor the Contents of the Books _ This Information I told him was requested by the Referees and to them I should report what he had said.
