Memorandum for the consideration of Mr. Steele upon his report respecting Governor DesBarres

1st The Sum of 33.5.10 Stated in the Account of Mr. Sparrow is disallowed

This sum [ni] point of amount is of no Consequence but materila [ni] point of [reprec:]:tation - and it ought to be allowed for the following rasons [sic] -

In that account the charge for the articles is allowed - viz 165 for 100 Barrels of Flour And 232.10.0 for 60 - Barrels of Pork - for Truckage 1.6.8. This is allowed and the voucher is The invoice signed by Sparrow

The disallowed articles amounting to 33.5.10 is vouched by the same invoice and as the Charges are all fair ordinary Mercan:tile charges upon the Articles delivered they ought to be allowed - they are -

1st - a Commission of 5 Pr Ct -           19.18.10

2nd - An Insurance at 2 1/2 Pr Ct -        11.4.0

3rd - 1/2 Pr Ct Comm on the [insured?]  2.3.0.18.10

                                                                        33.5.10

To procure the Articles [to] send them in safety it was necessary to incur these charges. And unless it is the charge of 1/2 Pr Ct Comr of  insurance on the 33.5.10 - when it should Only have been on the [trimie?] Cost of the Goods & Commissions, a mere [trifle], there is not an objectionable  item  But this small fraction of 2.3.0 is an error of Sparrow not of DesBarres Who must have payd it as he proposes the Voucher ...
