Thereupon the ship and cargo were seized by Sir John Shaw of Greenock. On a trial in the Exchequer we superseded defence rather on the legal ground that we had our clearance from a lawful port and had not broken bulk nor touched ground in Scotland (being resolved with the first fair wind to carry the cargo to some foreign port) or upon ground of misfortune and ignorance but chose rather to throw ourselves on your Majesty's compassion. All the time of our ship's clearance and going off we were altogether ignorant of the laws of England which after the 1st of May because the laws of Scotland. We have not been in the least blamed for embezzlement and in time coming we for ever resolve to observe the laws according to the strictest rules of a regular and fair trade and the total loss of our ship would be ruinous to our poor families.
