LONDON,

November I8th, 1763.
SUMMARY.
Joseph Sherwood, Agent for Rhode Island, petitioned on
behalf of Daniel and John Jenks of Providence, merchants and
owners of the British sloop Kinnicut, George Hopkins
Commander, which was taken since the cessation of hostilities
by the Spanish schooner Fortes, commanded by Juan Baz
and carried into Trinidad and is still detained by the Spaniards
without any process of adjudication.

The sloop Kinnicut left Surinam for Rhode Island on
March 27th, 1763, with a cargo of molasses, linen and china
to the value of 2,566 sterling. This sloop was captured on
April ist, 1763 while the preliminary articles of peace were
ratified on November 22nd, 1762.

The vessel which took the Kinnicut is said to be owned by
the Spanish Governor of Trinidad and that is the reason why
it has had no legal trial pursuant to the articles of peace.

The crew were marooned with the apparent design that
no more might be heard of them and no remonstrance made
to His Majesty.
