North Atlantic coast fisheries arbitration: I, William Rumery of Lubec, testify and say: That I was a hand on board the schooner Madison of Lubec fitted out for the fisheries that we sailed about the 25th of August last and went on to Grand Menan Bank about twenty one miles or more from land and fished till the 29th of the same month, saw a brig bearing down upon us, soon hailed us asked the name of the vessel, skipper not being then on board I answered the Madison, sent a boat aboard and ordered all the crew aboard the boat and carried us on board the brig Dotterel, ordered the Madison under way for Halifax, ordered us under the forecastle deck among the goats and fowls where we remained four days, gave bread and water to us once a day, arrived fourth day at Halifax and set us all ashore, but Robert Rumery told us we must get a passage home as we could we got a passage and came home leaving the Madison at Halifax where I suppose she is now. The fish and salt they sold out of her in harbors on the way before they arrived in Halifax. The injury and loss is about nine hundred dollars. I saw Winslow in irons at Halifax. WILLIAM RUMERY Sworn to before ETHER SHEPLEY NOVEMBER 6 1824.
I, Robert Rumery, on oath declare: That I have heard the statement signed by William Rumery read and know that it is wholly true. I further state that after the remainder of the Madison's crew left us I continued on board the Dotterel sixteen days, my brother William left me a little provision after that was gone I had nothing for two days then had two thirds of a seaman's ration except grog then got under way and came to L'Etau harbor Deer island asked lieutenant what he was going to do with me, said I should be carried to St John's and put in prison until my trial and no doubt I should be hung then got under way and went to St John's, laid there four days then was told I might go on shore, went ashore and thence home. I was a hand on board the Madison when she was going out and met the Diligence and Friend bringing in the crews of the Reindeer and Ruby that had been captured. After learning the facts we put about and ran into Lubec and anchored. Benjamin Small wanted us to go with them and help take the Reindeer and Ruby as the Friend had got aground and Captain Ansel Coggins of the Madison agreed to go and all the crew but one and took on board seven or eight others there were not more than twelve or at most fifteen on board, had a number of muskets but no bayonets, then went down upon the Reindeer our skipper hailed them and told them to heave to. Jones told his men to prepare for action, we hailed a second time and Jones ordered the fore sheet cast off and told Robert Small that he might take charge of his vessel and carry her to Eastport. Jones and his men went aboard the barge having first come on board of us and drank some grog by invitation and we went to Eastport, guns were fired until after the Reindeer was retaken and Jones had left us and gone on board of his barge and then only by way of rejoicing. WILLIAM RUMERY Sworn to before ETHER SHEPLEY NOVEMBER 6 1824.
