A committee chosen by the people

Nova Scotia.

Halifax, November 16, 1761

These may certify, that we the subscribers,

being chosen a committee by the people

arrived in this province, from the kingdom of

Ireland, the last summer, have at their request

journeyed to the bason of Minis and

Cobuquet, and diligently viewed the land situated

on those bays, which were reserved for Col.

Mc Nutt, and his associates; and

are of opinion, that the said lands are equal

in goodness, and fully answer the description

given by him in an advertisement, published by

him at Londonderry, bearing date the 20th of

April, 1761.  And do further certify, that in

our opinion, the said lands and soil is equal in

goodness to the best lands in Ireland, and capable

of producing wheat, rye, barley, oats, pease,

 hemp, flax, potatoes, turnips, and all

sorts of garden stuff, which grow here with the

greater luxurience and (as some of us have been in the province of Pennsylvania,

and we take this opportunity to assure

all our countrymen that our reception here exceeded

far what Col. McNutt had assured us of and that we

found all the inhabitants ready to assist, and

promote us in our undertaking, with all good

offices, and treated us with the utmost goodness

and humanity.
