Robt [Robert?] Peel
Sir, Waterford 2d January 1814
I have received your letter of the 29th of Januaury
ult inclosing a Memorial of a Mr Forrestall, which
(so far as respects) my conduct is not correctly
stated as I never interfered any further in this
matter, than to signify that I thought it most
advisable to make his application to Government, and
not to me, in case it were necessary to have any
Sanction or Authority for permitting Persons to
emigrate from this Country.
Conceiving therefore that I had nothing to do
with the Business, I certainly did refuse taking any
sort of responsibility on myself, or to sanction
by [...ting ?] under my hand, an act that might,
(for aught I could tell) be perverted to the
purposes of taking [officers?] from hence,
perhaps to foreign Countries, against which there
appears to be an existing Statute Law, and which
within those few days, has been promulgated in the
publick [public?] newspapers of this City.
I have the Honor to be
Sir Your most obedt [obedient?] Mayor of Waterford
