"When, early in 1662, it was deemed advisable by the General Court of Massachusetts to congratulate Charles II upon his Restoration, and to send an agent to act for the general interests of the colony, a letter was written to Herbert Pelham, Esq., Major Nehemiah Bourne, Capt. Francis Willoughby, Mr. Richard Hutchinson (Treasurer of the Navy under the Commonwealth) and others, desiring that they would supply their representatives, upon their arrival, with such funds as they might require, on the account of the colony. By this time, however, both Bourne and Willoughby were preparing to leave the country."
