who lately came from North Carolina to this Place, has, in a very unjust and 
fraudulent Manner, become indebted to the Subscribers, with a large Number of 
others of the Merchants and Tradesmen of the said City, to the Value of near 
Four Thousand Pounds; upon which Credit, he hath built a fine single deck, and 
taken up a large Quantity of Goods for her Lading, under Pretence of sending her 
forthwith to North Carolina; and, in order the more effectually and clandestinely 
to cover and carry on his wicked and fraudulent Intentions, he gave out to his 
Creditors, that he did not intend to leave the Place, but settle here; yet, after 
the Vessel left the Port, he, unknown to his Creditors, and contrary to his Engagement,
proceeded in a private Manner to New Castle; at which Place the said WHITE ,
and the Captain of the said Brigantine, John Thornton, with their Wives,
embarked and sailed in her, to some Place, as is apprehended, where the said
WHITE may think himself safest from his Creditors, with a Design entirely to cheat 
and defraud them of their just Debts. Bow we the Subscribers, in order for the 
apprehending of the said John WHITE  , and for preventing the like Impositions 
by him on others, for the future, and for procuring, if possible, from him our just 
Demands, do hereby give public Notice of the Conduct of the said John WHITE, 
and desire all and any of our Friends, or the Friends of Justice, in any Port or 
Place where the said WHITE  
may arrive with the said Vessel, to arrest and apprehend him, together with the 
Vessel, on our Accounts, and of such their friendly and generous Transactions to
remit to us forthwith an Account, that they may have the proper Credentials
authentically transmitted to them, which they may depend shall be done with
the utmost Expedition: and we do hereby engage to support and indemnify such
Persons, in the fullest and amplest manner, for interposing in our Behalf
against the said WHITE , and the 
said Vessel; and to make them full Compensation, for the Trouble and Expenses 
which they shall sustain in this Behalf.


N.B. In case the said Vessel should be arrested, it must be done severally
in the Names of John Wharton, Builder of the said Vessel, John Malcolm,
Sailmaker, William Spafford, Ropemaker and Ship chandler, Luke Morris, James
Wharton, and Enoch Story, in Company, Rope makers and Ship chandlers, and
Daniel Offley, Blacksmith. And in case the said WHITE  should be arrested, it
may be done in any other of the Subscribers Names severally.

The said John WHITE  is a slim young Man, near 27 Years of Age, about 5 Feet
6 or 7 Inches high, small Roman Nose, talks quick, one of his upper Teeth
appears decayed, and is of a lively Behaviour.

The Vessel is a single deckBrigantine, called the Ranger, 55 Feet straight

Will of Rachel JORDAN WHITE of Perquimans County I Rachel WHITE, of the Province 
of Carolina, and County of Perquimans, being weak of body,but of sound and dispposing 
memory, do think Proper to make and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament, in 
the manner and form following: Firstly I give and bequeath unto my three sons, Joshua 
WHITE, John WHITE and Caleb WHITE, my negro girl Called Priscilla. She and all her 
increase to them and their heirs forever, also I give unto my son Joshua (WHITE),one

my son Benjamin (WHITE), ome feather bed and furniture, and one Case and bottles, also I 
give all right of that Negro man Called Jacob, which Mary PRITCHARD left me to him and 
his heirs forever. Mrs. Winslow related that the preceeding will of Rachel Jordan White 
was found unsigned and undated behind a mirror in and antique shop in Suffolk, Virginia. 
Because it names the names of her husband and children, which can be verified otherwise, 
it is deemed of some genealogical value
