M. A., 165, 427: "The petition of John Winthrop and Stephen Bruce humbly sheweth that they are owners of the Sloop Adam, George Creighton Commander, now ready to sail for the Island of Hispanolia [sic.] and being desirous of procuring a quantity of Cannon and military Stores, they intend purchasing 'em at said Island, and for the better securing the same and defending the said Sloop, will have her well arm'd on her homeward passage and take on board an additional number of men with orders to proceed with all speed for some port on this Continent. Wherefore, as it's probable the said Vessel may meet with some belonging to our enemies and will be in a condition to make prizes of them, Your petitioners humbly pray that your Honors will commissionate the said Commander, to qualify him therefor and your petitioners as in duty bound shall ever pray.
