TranscriptTo Walker & Woodbridge, Barbadoes 1 November 1756


We wrote your Mr. Woodbridge the 4th July via Philadelphia & you the
12th July by the Brig Greg & Via Philadelphia. As we have not heard from
you since, we are affraid these Letters may have miscarried.
We are advised that the Greg sailed from St. Eustatia for Jamaica the
25th September & imagines she must have missed your Isleand, or you would
have wrote us. She took A Cargo of Provisions in on Freight at Belfast &
with them proceeded here & if met no Market, which was the case, was
to go with them to such Isleand or Isleands in the West Indies as we
thought most for the advantage of the concerned. Agreeable thereto, she
sailed for your place the 13th July &, if consigned to you, you could not
obtain A price, you had orders to send her to Jamaica where she discharged.
[She] was to take a freight to Europe if a good one could be obtained.
If not to return to this place & take in a Freight of Flaxseed for Ireland.
These are the orders Captain Hathorn is to follow, if you have not seen him. In that case, he was to receive his orders from you. We shall always
be glad to have it in our power to serve you here. G&C
