    815. Bonnell & Budd to Gideon White, testifying to the good character, and conduct of Mr. Eikanah Morton. This subject "which tho' not interesting to" them they consider it their duty "as Men and neighbours to state such facts as may tend to wipe off any impression which may have been made on an unprejudiced mind by ill natur'd reports prompted alone by violent party spirit." Mr. Morton's appointment to be deputy collector meets with their complete approval. They conclude: "Your knowledge of the world will point out to you, to what lengths weak and ambitious minds are led by party spirit - to this unhappy cause may be attributed the want of a good Society, and almost every social virtue in Digby - We trust that time and Mr. M's conduct will convince those who are unbiasd that he is, as we believe him to be, undeserving those imputations, and an injur'd man - ". Holograph.

An exact copy of this notice is enclosed. ''The Depositions &c. will shew what faith either the Farmer or Fishermen can place in such notifications four and Eight Days after both Farmers and Fishermen were not only pressed but two Creuely wounded. We therefore request your Honour (if you think proper) will lay before His Excellency Sir J. W. in Council the Examinations & depositions, and we cannot but hope such steps will be taken that will prevent in future such Outrageous and destructive Conduct. We do not hesitate in saying That if such Conduct is permitted to be practised as the Officers of the Whiting has been guilty of allong this shore and Harbours the most valuable subjects the Young Fishermen will remove to the U States - and their Fathers will follow unless justice is done them.
