I have read your letter by Mr. *Boriay
concerning the negro boy that Capt. Perkins carried to the West Indies.
I have called on Capt. Perkins to know what he has done with the boy,
he says was so bad that he couldn't keep him any longer. He did steal
in this place and if the law, had been put in force against him he would
have been hanged here and he did steal on board the vessel in the West
Indies so that he had ten or fifteen pound to pay for the *Dormeg that
he had done, and I think it is best that he is out of the province for
it will save the trouble of hanging him here.
I am Sir your Honourable Servant
Stephen Skinner Esquire
