Identifier: Mss 705409

Description

Legal deposition given at Newport, Rhode Island by sailor George Cutler. Cutler identifies Richard Groonald and a James Stratton as members of the mutinous crew of the 'Resolution' which was commanded by Captain Robert Glover. The mutineers left Cutler, Glover and twenty two other sailors at Madagascar as they did not want to engage in potentially criminal activity with the Captain. Glover had been issued a Privateers commission by Governor Fletcher of New York, a prominent proponent for the use of piracy as a tool of economic warfare. Cutler was deposed by Nathaniel Coddington.
