Grieve & Bremner

9th Nov

Have engaged Newhook the builder till the last of October next at two pounds under last year. Would have engaged him for two years, lest the new schooner might not be launched by the 31st of October but he would not agree; the Maria’s news of rise of oil becoming generally known makes a strange alteration. His brother, Messrs Garland’s builder, we find, has £ 100 p/ann wages, with a house for his family to live in & his firing & many other expenses into the bargain.
