My Lord, Having the best reasons for believing that the Rbt DYASON late of Faversham Kent, by trade a sailor, is now proceeding to embark on board of some of his Majesties transports for the Cape of Good Home as a settler under the auspices of this Government.
We beg permission to enquire if it be known at this your Lordship's Office on board of what ship the said Robt DYASON is directed to take his passage - he having clandestinely removed himself and all his effects from his late residence without having satisfied his creditors and now stands greatly indebted in a considerable sum of money to
My Lord. Your Lordship's obedient humble svt ARMSTRONG and MILLER Sue Mackay | 31 December 2010 National Archives, Kew CO48/41, 163
