“Whereas Captain RICHARD MORRIS, of this city, merchant, died intestate leaving a considerable estate behind him, and whereas his brother, Colonel Lewis Morris, hath a great interest for the protection of the estate, it is judged requisite that some extraordinary care should be taken.” I have thought fit to appoint Mr. Matthias Nicoll, mayor of this city, Captain Thomas Delavall, and Captain Cornelius Steenwych of the Council to His Royal Highness’ Government, Captain John Berry and Mr. Thomas Gibbs to be administrators, this September, 1672. E. Andross.”
