... Mr. Samuel Sparrow was one of the Traders, who, having furnished Supplies for the service of his Majesty's then infant Colony of Cape Breton, had taken advantage after the stoppage of payment of my Bills at the Treasury, to swell his Demands, and to seize upon and ravage my property and Estates. His pretentions were referred for settlement to an Arbitration, which lasted about two years, and whereupon the Arbitrators thought it their duty to make the following representations.

"Copy of a letter from Sir William Dolben to Charles Long Esqre. Secretary of the  Treasury, dated 7th September 1791. viz: "I am desired by my brethren the Arbitrators on the Case of Lieutenant Governor DesBarres (for he has been constantly informed that he is only suspended from the exercise of his Government, during the examination of his Conduct which has been arraigned, and not superseded) to put into your Hands the enclosed Letter, requesting you would communicate the same to Mr. Pitt, and lay it before the Lords of the Treasury, humbly but earnestly entreating their Lordships immediate Consideration of the Subject; it being of the most decided consequence to the Honor and Fortunes of Mr. DesBarres, as well as Justice to him and the Public, as a Man holding so high and responsible a Character, that his Conduct should , without further delay, be investigated, the Charges against him be known to him, his Defence heard, secret Calumnies refuted, and Judgment given from open evidence and public Documents, long since produced and delivered into the proper Offices." [See also: September 7, 1791]
