With this you have Copys of my last & of Two Letters I received today
from Jamaica. I wrote to Messrs. Curtin & Parker to assist Captain
Hathorne incase he went there, but he thought proper to lake his own way,
which I am affraid will be a very bad one for you & the other Gentlemen
concerned in his Cargoe. He writes what is very false about Curtin & Parker, as they are good Men.
We shiped by Captain Hathorn some Beef & Pork on our account. Pray
make him account with you for it on his arrival at Liverpool.
This Evening A large French Prize came in worth about £30,000 [which]
has in A large parcel of Indigoe. We can do nothing considerable in
these things for want of a sure Friend in London. & I dare not run a risk
till that is fixed.
I am doing all I can to get away the Johnson, Waddell, & William &
George. The first will be loaded by the 20th Instant, the Second by the 24th, & the third about the 6lh January, but I am affraid will be detained
a long time after for want of hands. WC
