      To His Honour Gabriel D Ludlow, Esquire President of the Province of New Brunswick &c &c

      The Memorial of Nichs Johnson and other Inhabitants of the parish of St. Andrews, and its vicinity, in the County of Charlotte. ---

      Humbly Seweth

      That your Memorialist in general are of the number of those Loyalist, who emigrated into this country at the peace with America in 1783, or their sons now of age, and were mostly comprised among those Loyalist denominated the Penobscot Association, who settled in and about Passamaquoddy bay, and were promised One hundred acres of lands for themselves, and Fifty for their wives, and for each child. ---

      That from various intervening impediments your Memorialist never received their full allotments of land which Government had at first given them good reason to expect would not have been delayed.

      That during this long lapse of time your Memorialist have laboured under great difficulties to maintain themselves, and bring up large families of children, who, by the divine blessing have increased to a pleasing degree, as Your Honor will perceive by the annexed list of them. ---

      That your Memorialist, stimulated by parental affection to provide for their offspring have anxiously sought for unoccupied lands whereon to form a settlement for themselves and families so that by their united endeavours they may be enabled to surmount their present hardships ---

      That your Memorialist are informed of a Tract of Land lying between this county and the Oromocto river commonly called Pleasant Ridge, being in a wilderness ungranted, which if secured to your Memorialist by a Grant, might answer all their claims as to quality, and they believe is a good quality, and calculated for a large settlement. ---

      Your Memorialist therefore humbly pray Your Honor will be pleased to Grant them such a portion of the above Tract of Land as may be sufficient for their accommodation and also reserve and lay out such portions of the same, as Your Honor may deem expedient for public purposes, as they with satisfaction look forward to a large and flourishing settlement there if their Memorial is compiled with, and Your Memorialist as in duty bound will ever pray ---

      [Calais, Union; Mills; Solomon; Greenlow; Bear; Spencer] page [2], iss. 1, vol. XIV

      Eastport Sentinel
      Place(s) of Publication Eastport, Maine

      On the 30th ult, a most distressing accident occured at Calais, in the House of Mr - Spencer, opposite the Union Mills.
      As Solomon Greenlaw, formerly of this parish, was in the act of examining a Musquet which had been loaded with a ball and large shot, two days before, for the purpose of firing at a Bear, the muzzle dropped on the floor, and the gun went off. The contents passed through the floor and wounded three persons in the apartment below- a young woman about eighteen years of age, the daughter of Greenlaw, was sitting with a fine child of Mrs Spencer on her knee, the mother on another chaire beside them. The ball passed through the child's thigh, shattering in a dreadful manner, and entered the body of the young woman, lodging, as it is supposed, at the opposite hip-some of the shot struck the neck and shoulder of Mrs Spencer, but the injury was not a serious nature-a faint hope is entertained of the young woman, but that of the child is despaired of.
