Refers the Deputies to the last proclamation sent to Bourg, directing them to assist in such cases as this. A report of their transactions to be sent to Annapolis. Better that a single refractory individual should be severely dealt with than that the whole community should lie under the suspicion of being disorderly, by supporting those who resist the law. To the interest of the Deputies to see the law carried out.

By enclosed minute of Council, Michael Vincent is ordered to repay the outlay Gautier has been put to, in obtaining judgment for the killing of his horse. Deputies are to see that both legal expenses and valuation of the animal are paid: they are further, to report their proceedings to the Governor-in-Council. M.'s only aim is to preserve peace. It is better that one turbulent person should be severely punished, than that the whole community should lie under the suspicion of lawlessness. Their position as Deputies obliges them to assist in enforcing order.
