GOVERNOR PALLISER'S DECISION IN re Mr. BRUSH v. AGAINST Mr. GOODFELLOW
CONCERNING THE SEALING POST AT MECATINA.
RECORD BOOK, ST. JOHN'S, NEWFOUNDLAND. Volume, 4, page 56.
By His Excellency Hugh Pallisser, &c., &c.
Mr. Brush having applied to me, for leave to occupy the Sealing Post of St. Augustine this year, in behalf of his Fishing Ship, I having upon a disputed Claim between him and Mr. Goodfellow to the Post of Macatina, determined in favour of Mr. Goodfellow.
I now approve of Mr. Brush occupying the Post of St. Augustine this year, and as an Encouragement to both these Gentlemen to become British Ship Fishers, I allow Mr. Goodfellow also to occupy for this year, any other Post in the Macatina District (St. Augustine excepted) no other Fishing Ship making a claim thereto, and Mr. Brush for this year, may also occupy any other Post to the Eastward of St. Augustine, no other Fishing Ship putting in a claim thereto.
Given &c. in Pitts Harbour, Labrador, 23rd August, 1767.
By Order of His Excellency,
