Dear McLean,

I have heard nothing from you of late but feel satisfied that you and Forsaith are by this time bringing disputes towards a conclusion and I hope that ere this reaches you the Governor will have paid you a visit.

I was only just in time to keep you out of some trouble and to maintain the character of our Department the case I allude to endangered your appointment also an execution was about being forwarded to apprehend you for a paltry sum of Money due to "Allerton" I have taken upon me to pay the sum and expences therson amounting in all to £10.3.0 ten pounds three shillings.

There was no alternative I was necessitated either to do that or spoil your usefulness I have done it and hope you will approve of it and authorize Dr.Binclair to reserve that sum out of your Salary. I hope in future you will be very careful of these matters I ought to have told you that I consulted Dr. Sinclair who very kindly entered into my brew and offered me the Money there and then. Write me by the very first opportunity I will enclose the account by the first opportunity.


Yours very truly,
George Clarke.
