TranscriptTo George Dunlope, Ballycastle 27 November 1756


Annexed you have Copy of our last & are very sory to inform you
that three of the best hands are left your ship, among them your Apprentice
Mr. Dunlope is. They have entered on board of a Privateer, & as you have
sent your Vessel here without the Act of Parliament, which Mr. Montgomery kept, as your Captain says, or a Servants Indenture, its
not in our power to do any thing for you. But if you send us these Papers,
& the Privateer has success, we shall be fully paid for all the damages
you sustain. We have also the bad news to inform you of your servant the
Shew maker runing away.
We are much affraid it will be nigher the 20th January, nor the 20th
December, when your Vessel sails, for she must be heaved down, as the
Captain tells us, & indeed we are obliged to tell you, we think things on
Board goes on very slowly.
We are surprized that so much Butter as Eleven Firkins could be
expended in one Voyage on board your ship. We shall talk to the Captain
about them. You may be assured nothing that appears to us for your
interest shall be left undone. G&C
