Wee are given to understand that there are fourteen men gon from the Rebells in Mourn, being a Barrony in this County, with horses and other comodities to sell in yor Iland and so retorne to there rebellion company agayn without suspicon, whereof wee thought fitt to give you notice that so a course may be taken that they may be sent hither to receave due punishmt according to their crimes, or at least made sure there till they be sent for.
Ther is one Toby a Smith, and one of the McNuskies who dwelt in Arglas and that be of the 14: who went from Mourn: and one Cormack Maguire, the rest be Iresh men whose names wee know not.
And so leaveing this to yol care we comitt you to Gods pteccon and rest,
