Copy of a Protest made by William Vertue to the President and jurors of the court martial appointed to try him dated 15 July 1766

Scope and Content

Vertue states that the court is illegal, since the crimes of which he is accused took place after the date at which he resigned from the Company's service. He discusses the nature of a contract, how much he had been paid at the start of the relevant month and what impact this may have on his claim to have left the service.
