To the worshipfull his majesties justices of the peace for the
city and liberty of Westminster in general quarter
sessions assembled.

The humble petition of Patrick Lynch of the
parish of Saint Margaret Westminster perukemaker.

Sheweth
that your petitioners apprentice Henry Toot was
bound to him for seven years by indenture dated
the twenty fourth day of August 1733.

That the said apprentice hath been very negligent
in his business having run away from his service
twice.

That the said apprentice is likewise of a pilfering
disposition insomuch that he hath often taken
away and pawned his razors.

That your petitioner is thorougly convinced that
his said apprentice is quite irreclaimable, your
petitioner having taking a great deal of pains to
work a reformation in him but to no manner
of purpose.

Therefore your petitioner humbly prays
this worshipfull court to discharge him from
the said indenture and apprentice, the
said apprentice being consenting on his
part to such discharge.

And your petitioner shall ever pray etc.
