'I calculated on my attorneys receiving the claim which I had put in, with as much certainty as if it was a Bll of Exchange on the British Govt., and under such confident expectation I made engagements which it will be unprofitable for me to fulfil and my name as a merchant will be dishonoured, unless my cause is taken under consideration by your honourable Board.'
