And we further certify that we furnished each Master of a vessel, with a Certified List of the Negroes on board the vessel, And informed him that he would not be permitted to Land in Nova Scotia any other Negroes, than those contained in the List, And that if any other Negroes were found on board the vessel, he would be severely punished. And that we informed the Agent for Transports of this Matter And desired him to use means for returning back to the Port of New York all Negroes not mentioned in the Lists.
