TranscriptTo Capt. Hugh Hathorn, of the Brigg Greg 11 July 1756

You are to proceed first wind for Barbadoes & deliver a Letter you
receive with this for Messrs. Walker & Woodbridge who will immediatly let you know if you are to discharge there or to proceed farther, & such
orders as you receive from them you are to follow.
You must use all expedition in your power, & if the Vessel is to return
here, she must be here early in November, & if you cant sell the Cargoe to
come with her, you must send her by the Mate. If you have a Prospect
to be here by the 1st December, you will be [in] time anough to take the
command of her home. But if you cant be here by that time, take your
passage for Europe.
We expect you will be very frugal, for you well know the small Freight
your Brigg is on wont bear much expences.
Should you have the bad Fortune to Miss the Island of Barbadoes, then
you are to open our Letter to Walker & Woodbridge & follow our directions
to them. G&C

P.S. Incase you go to St. Eustalia, Mr. Robert Stewart, Mr. Stivenson, &
Mr. Nathaniel Laurence, Merchants there, are Men that may bse depended
upon. If you leave any thing behind you there, let it be with Nathaniel
Lawrence, & if you Value your self on any person there, we choose him but
take care & fix your Terms.

New York, 12th July 1756, I own the above to be a true Copy of my
Orders from Greg & Cunningham which I promise to observe.
