At an occasional meeting of the committee.

Mr. Alexander Hostler applied to the committee to have their advice concerning a ship called the Clemantine, that was coming to his address from London, commanded by Dick Wier, which is lost on the middle ground near the Bar of the River. At the same time Mr. Hostler delivered to the committee an invoice of sundry stationery goods shipped on board the said vessel, which he requested the committee to take also into consideration and direct him what may be done with the said ship, stores and materials and stationery goods.
Ordered, That it is the opinion of this committee that the vessel, with her stores and materials, may be sold without any breach being made in the General Association, but as the stationery goods are landed at Brunswick this committee think they don't come under their direction.
