Details: The bearer James Edgar, one of my bonded men and who has been in my employ snce I first came to this part of the country has conducted himself with so much propriety that I feel very anxious to render him some service for the first few weeks he was with me he was led away by ill advisers, but his conduct for these last two years has fully made up for that, he has been eight years and a half in the country and has about four to serve and I have no doubt if you will sign his peitition I shall be able to obtain him a ticket of leave and I think I can venture to pledge myself he will not discredit your recommendation, and as you are the residence Magistrate in this part of the Colony and Edgar never having been brought before you upon any complaint whatever and as I have every reason to believe him to be honest, sober and industrious, I am inclined to think the Goverment on my explanation will grant him the indulgence asked, and I can assure you I am entirely actuated by his conduct (and I also consider it may be an inducement to others following his example). In parting with this man I lose the best I have got, but I wave that on the man's account.
