p.3 To the Humane - Your petitioner has served His Majesty 27 years by sea and land, and by an act of providence is reduced to necessity. By the loss of the Franklin Schooner on Lake Erie, he lost the fruit of nearly 27 years service in the Navy and Army, being most part of the time on these lakes under Com'dr Steel, Com. the Hon. Alex. Grant, Capt. David Cowan, Com. George B. Hall, Capt. Barclay and Capt. Cuttier in the Royal Navy. Previous to that period he served on board the Minoteur, Capt. Louis, at the Battle of the Nile on the 1st of August, 1798, and was severely wounded, and is now afflicted with the Rheumatism - Your Petitioner humbly solicits your benevolent charity.
James Cassa, Late Steward in H.M. Navy.
Any favour shewn to him at Mr. Moses Wells near the Hospital will be gratefully acknowledged by J.C.
