Entd.  —  Decision

This Man pretends to very Considerable property but unfortunately for himself he relies entirely upon the Credit of Mr. WILLIAMS to whom from many Circumstances we pay no attention, & indeed Mr. WILLIAMS does not even Certifie in this Case, He only writes the Memorial & under these Circumstances, Mr. BROWN appears to us to be an Impostor & not entitled to receive anything from Government.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 12, Volume 99, folios 193-194.
