Letter from Messrs. Dorset, Johnson, and Co. to Charles Long, Esq. 5th May, 1792

... Protested Bills ... in their said Letter of  the 19th December  1789, were pleased to desire that we should cause immediate Payment to be made of all Such Bills as should be presented to us, or of such Sums as Governor DesBarres should admit to be justly due thereon ... in the years 1784, 1785, 1786 and 1787 ... with an interest at the rate of Five per Cent from the time they became due to the day of Payment ... The Articles of Expense No. 44 & 45, fall under this description, together with that, relating to Mr. Sparrow, who brought new Charges, amounting to several thousand Pounds, and  more against the Service which Lieutenant DesBarres refused, whereupon he was arrested, and an arbitration took place, which took up nearly Two Years, for the Necessity of which reference may he had to the Arbitrators, who, we understand, have addressed their Lordships thereupon ...
