[Original spelling retained. The listening experience informs one of many complaints against garrison-commander Captain Thomas Lloyd including embezzlement of stores, hiring out soldiers, bullying and taxing civilians and entertaining rather than fighting the enemy at Fort St. John’s]

 

Council of Trade and Plantations to Mr. Secretary Hedges. In obedience to the directions of the Lords of the Council, we have examined several affidavits by the soldiers lately returned, concerning the late behaviour of Capt. Lloyd there. […] He encroached upon their daily subsistance by deductions out of every mess's allowance of butter and cheese per fortnight for his own use. […]  Whereas the soldiers used to receive their pay every fortnight, they were now glad to gett it in two, four or six months.  […] He lay several nights (a week) without the garrison, seldom attended Divine service, but diverted himself on the Sabbath days with his flute and violin, to the scandal of religion and piety.
