We the undersigned, certify from the best of our knowledge, for the information of those whom it may concern, that Thomas Tomkins, Capt. of the Schooner Phoebe, and the crew belonging to the said vessel, as well as the inhabitants of this village, did all in their power to save the cargo and said vessel, and that it was in no way the Captain's neglect that the said vessel and cargo was lost, but entirely owing to a very severe North East storm of wind.
