Address of the Assembly of Barbados to Governor Lowther. 28th June, 1715. […] Agree with Grand Jury as to evil example of some of the Clergy. Mr. Gordon leaves his benefice several weekes together, and from time to time goes to Martinique, a popish country and there trades, and brings from thence great quantities of contraband goods, such as brandy and French wines, and in a publick store in St. Michaels town sells the same, this with his playing at dice in publick tavrons, and in publick company till midnight, and seranading with fiddles from house to house the greatest part of a night together, with his being a principal promoter of our late unhappy differences and divisions, we think no small scandal to the Church and Religion we profess. Pray H.E. to take such measures as may prevent the Ministers of the Island from meddleing with matters of politicks etc
