Royal Gazette, and Miscellany of the Island of Saint John, Saturday, February 25, 1792

To his Excellency EDMUND FANNING, LL. D. Lieutenant Governor and Commander in Chief in and over his Majesty’s Island of Saint John, and the Territories adjacent thereunto, in America, Chancellor of the same, &c. &c. &c.

May it please your Excellency,

We the INHABITANTS of the several Settlements of Hillsborough River, Bedford Bay, Savage Harbour, and Saint Peters, beg Leave to express to your Excellency our extreme Regret at Hearing certain Complaints to have been exhibited against you, and three other Officers, to his Majesty’s Most Honourable Privy Council, injuriously representing your Excellency’s administration to have been factious and arbitrary, and those other Gentlemen to have so grossly misbehaved in their respective Offices, as to bring his Majesty’s Government in this Island into popular Hatred and Contempt, and particularly stating that the Administration of Justice, since the Restoration of the Chief Justice from his late Suspension, has been partial, and made subservient to the View and Hopes of this pretended Faction of your Excellency; and that great Dissatisfaction prevails through the Island, from the arbitrary and oppressive Proceedings of the Officers of Government.

On being made acquainted with so unexpected an Occurrence, we should so much Injustice to our own Feelings, and withhold from your Excellency that Tribute of Gratitude we owe you, if we omitted the Opportunity we now have of contradicting those base and injurious Assertions, assuring your Excellency, that a general Satisfaction pervades the Island with your Excellency’s Administration, and entire Approbation of the conduct of the other Gentlemen complained of. The fair and impartial Administration of the Law, since the Restoration of the Chief Justice, we particularly mark as a Circumstance highly flattering to our future Expectations.
