Ansr To the best of my Remembrance Mr Weemes Dr
Somerville and Major William Ireland did apply and desire
to see the Records but said Harrison refused, locking the
Door where the same was lodged and put the Key in his
Pockett and carryed the same home, afterwards the Gentn
aforesaid appointed to meet some days after and Ordered this
Respondant to Acquaint Mr Harrison thereof & desire him
to meet them or send the Key. This Respondant did acquaint
said Harrison according to Request, but he neither met them
nor sent the key as he was desired

Lib. C. B.

That in the month of February Last he was in Company
with Mr Samuel Harrison Clerk of the County Court afore-
said at a certain Mary Parkers at Prince Frederick Town when
the said Harrison Raised a discourse about Persons under the
British Governments Acting in an Arbitrary and unlawful
manner, in Particular that a certain Captain Cornish had used
a Person that was detained aboard the Vessell he Commanded
as a Ransomer very ill, in taking, or suffering his People, to
take away all his Cloaths and Expressed himself in the follow-
ing words as near as this Deponent can Charge his Memory
with, that We complained of Our Neighbours being in a State
of Slavery, but by God he could not see we were in a better,
or where the difference was, only this, if the King of France
wanted a Sum of Money and knew his Subjects had it he
would Command it from them, and if the King of England
wanted a Sum of Money he would make his Parliament give
it him and yet We bragg'd truly of Our Great freedom And
farther this Deponent saith not.
Tho' Ireland Jnr
