In pursuance of two orders from His Excellency Sir Guy Carleton K. B. General and Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Forces from Nova Scotia to West Florida inclusive, both dated Head Quarters, New York, the one 15 April 1783 and the other 2nd May, We whose names are herunto subscribed do certify that we did carefully inspect the aforegoing Vessels on the 13th June 1783 and that on board the said vellels we found the negroes mentioned in the foregoing List amounting to forty four men, twenty nine Women and thirty two Children and to the best of our Judgement believe them to be all the negroes on board the said vessels and we enquired of the Master of each Vessel whether he had any Records, Deeds, Archives or papers or other property of the Citizens of the United States on board and to each Enquiry We were answered in the negative. And we further certify that We furnished each master of a Vessel with a Certified List of the Negroes on board the Vessell and informed him that he would not be permitted to Land in Nova Scotia any other Negroes than those contained on the List and that if any other negroes were found on board the Vessel he would be severely punished and that We informed the Agent for the Transports of this matter and desired him to use means for returning back to this place all negroes not mentioned in the List.
