In April he complained that the Clerk of the Cheque there had refused to enter the seamen procured for the ship from the day of their entry but only from their appearance. The Clerk replied that bad health had prevented him from mustering the ship, it was his clerk who had told JASON's officers that he could only give him clearance from appearance without the Clerk of the Cheque's directions.
