SUES FOR RECOVERY - 1795 (German)

2nd June 1795

Alexander McClure complaineth against Daniel Mylrea for that he stands endebted unto him in the sum of nine pounds one shilling and two pence halfpenny British for goods sold and delivered as will be made to appear. And whereas the complainant hath lately departed this Isle but hath left certain goods, chattels, and effects remaining here which the complainant apprehends will be speedily removed from the same he therefore prays an arrest against the said defendant and his effects wherever the same may be found or discovered and process according to the rules of the honourable Court of Chancery
