Pepperills, on their own acct. and risque, in and upon the good Briga, called the William, whereof is master under God for this present voyage George King, and now riding at anchor in the river of Piscataqua, and by God's grace bound for Barbadoes," and then follows the freight, lumber, shingles, oak staves; timber, fish, yokes, and bows, winding up, and so God send the good Briga to her desired port in safety. [Chicago Inter-Ocean, 5th]
