We the subscribers do certify that some years ago Mr. John Morrison was appointed Government, to make a survey of Lands in the Township of Clare, granted the French Neuteralists and that by some Mistake in the Survey A Pierre LeBlanc An Industrious Respectable Settler fell short of Land allowed him three hundred Acres, Mr. Morrison upon information of the Mistake acquainted L:Blanc that there was a Gore of Land unlocated betwixt Lott N. 62 & 63 and that it was left for the purpose of fullfilling L:Blanc’s Compliment, upon which presumption he has actually made a location, notwithstanding no return was ever made and has never obtained any Grant, therefore prays the he (L:Blanc) may have a Grant for this land, which will only put him upon a ?????? with other Settlers of families equal to his.

Sissiboo 1st March 1790

May it Please Your Excellency

When I had the honor of seeing you last I acquainted you with the flourishing state of the French Inhabitants of ths part of the Province, in regard of their population, also of their contracted local situation, upon which representation Your Excellency had the Goodness to promise you would render them every assistance in your power in consequence of which, I acquainted them you were much disposed to assist them provided they would make an application. They have therefore hired Stephen Tibido (one of themselves) to make such application, he will hand you this together with a list of the names of such Settlers as have the most numerous families; Should Your Excellency have the goodness to grant them More Lands, which they deserve and as good Settlers have a right to. Tibedo who is well acquainted with the Situation of the country can inform you of that part they would wish to locate.

I have the honor to be with

And Respect Your Excellendy’s

Most Obedient and Very Humble Servant

James Moody

His Excellency John Carr Esquire &c. &c. &c.
