[Appendix D(32) 1792 Report of Commissioners of Inquiry]
LETTER from the Duke of ATHOLL.
GENTLEMEN, London, February 6, 1792.
I Have the honour to inclose a state of the Population of the Isle of Man, just received from thence.
I am given to underftand, that many of the parishes are very exact ; but that in others, the numbers are given in too low, insomuch that the Population of the Isle of Man may in fact be estimated at thirty thousand souls.
I have the honour to be,
Your most obedient humble servant,
To John Spranger, William Osgoode, William Grant
William Roe, and David Reid, Esquires,
Commissioners for the Isle of Man. .
