      To His Excellency the Governor & the Honorable his Majesty's Council of the Province of New Brunswick
      The Memorial of Northrup Marple a loyal refugee from the late Province of New Jersey humbly sheweth\
      That your memorialist purchased the improvements of an ungranted tract of Land on the westerly side off Shamcook River near St Andrews in the district of Passamaquaddy bounded by the Lands of Ebenezer Greenlow and by lands yet ungranted.
      That he has remained till now with his family upon part of the said land and is yet in the possesion of the same. That he has been injurously & forcibly dispossessed of part thereof by one David Shields for which said Shields now stands indicted at the Supreme Court.

      Your memorialist therefore most humbly entreats your Excellency & Honors will be pleased to direct to such measures as may enable him to obtain a grant of the said land, of which he has thus purchased the improvements. And as in Duty bound shall ever pray

      That your memorialist has never received any grant of lands whatever from the Crown and humbly requests that he may be included in the list with those who are to draw for lots within the grant formerly made to John Mascarene in the Bay of Passamaquaddy And as in duty bound shall ever pray
