      To His Excellency Thomas Carleton Esquire Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New Brunswick etc etc

      The memorial of James Turner, David Eastman, Jonathan Greenlaw, Lachlan McCudy and others...

      Humbly sheweth

      That your Memorialists were of the number of those persons who during the war between Great Britain and her Colonies, left their possessions on account of their attachment to the British Government, and sheltered themselves and families from the rage of their enemies in His Majesty's Garrison then established at Penobscot...

      That previous to the Garrison's evacuation Penobscot the General there commanding agreeable to his instructions, directed to be made known to your Memorialists, that besides the Land allowed indiscriminately to all Loyalists desirous to settle in the bay of Passamaquaddie, those of the Penobscot association who had families should be allowed a certain proportion of Land for each woman and child to be laid out in the rear of the Land given to the Loyalists...

      That accordingly directions were given to the Surveyors who actually did lay out land for each woman and child belonging to the families of the Penobscot association and the Lots were drawn and assigned to each one.

      That numbers of those children now come to maturity and others concerned in the said Land have been and are still desirous to occupy and improve but have been much discouraged therefrom, as hitherto no Grant could be obtained to confirm the Possession- as also it having been represented to your Memorialists that certain persons now of the Association have applied for and allowed License to occupy a large portion of the Lands allotted to the families of your Memorialists

      Your Memorialists therefore beseech your Excellency a Grant of the Land agreeable to the original Survey...

      And as in Duty bound etc

      To His Excellency Thomas Carleton Esquire Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New Brunswick etc etc

      The memorial of James Turner, David Eastman, Jonathan Greenlaw, Lachlan McCudy and others...

      Humbly sheweth

      That your Memorialists were of the number of those persons who during the war between Great Britain and her Colonies, left their possessions on account of their attachment to the British Government, and sheltered themselves and families from the rage of their enemies in His Majesty's Garrison then established at Penobscot...

      That previous to the Garrison's evacuation Penobscot the General there commanding agreeable to his instructions, directed to be made known to your Memorialists, that besides the Land allowed indiscriminately to all Loyalists desirous to settle in the bay of Passamaquaddie, those of the Penobscot association who had families should be allowed a certain proportion of Land for each woman and child to be laid out in the rear of the Land given to the Loyalists...

      That accordingly directions were given to the Surveyors who actually did lay out land for each woman and child belonging to the families of the Penobscot association and the Lots were drawn and assigned to each one.

      That numbers of those children now come to maturity and others concerned in the said Land have been and are still desirous to occupy and improve but have been much discouraged therefrom, as hitherto no Grant could be obtained to confirm the Possession- as also it having been represented to your Memorialists that certain persons now of the Association have applied for and allowed License to occupy a large portion of the Lands allotted to the families of your Memorialists

      Your Memorialists therefore beseech your Excellency a Grant of the Land agreeable to the original Survey...

      And as in Duty bound etc
