 Notes:   Brig Cicero, John Gardner Jr., master. He had £4 16s in privilege outbound, and 1 hhd., 1 tierce in privilege on the voyage home. No occupation or position was given to him in the rank column, and it appears he was given £4 16s in money as privilege. He received £8 16s. in advance wages, which was the sum of the first month's wage of £4 + his outward privilege. A very unusual arrangement.
