18th century emigrants from Newry
22nd October 1765
We whose names are here-unto subscribed, being passengers of Mr. John Eccles merchant of Newry in the ship Snow Buchanon from said town of Newry to New York in the Americas.
We do hereby acquaint our friends in Ireland, that we have all arrived safe and well in
New York in eight weeks and six days .
During which voyage we must in common justice to Mr Eccles, acknowledge that he was very obliging and careful of every passenger, and gave us abundance of good provisions and water, and did every other thing in his power to make our to make our passage comfortable:
We therefore sincerely recommend it to our friends who may have an inclination to come to this country where religious freedom reigns to come with him should he set up for that way not doubting but they will experience his care and good nature as much as we have done, and we acknowledge that Captain Cochran behaved to us very kindly.
Given under our hands, at New York, this day the 24th August 1765.
