The Petition of Charles W. H. Tessier of St. John's, Merchant

Humbly Sheweth

That Robert Carter, Commander in the Royal Navy, departed this life at St. John's in this island on or about the twenty fifth day of May Anno Domini 1872 Intestate, not having made any will.
That he died possessed of interests in lands and effects in the Island which at the time of the granting of the administration hereinafter mentioned were stated to be of the probable value of six thousand and four hundred dollars.
That shortly after the decease of the said Robert Carter, administration of his Estate was granted to Peter Germon Tessier of St. John's, Merchant, by letters under the seal of the Honorable Court and dated the fifteenth day of June Anno Domini 1872.
That the said Peter Germon Tessier departed this life on the twenty fourth day of April last past without having fully administered the affairs of the estate of the said Robert Carter, and it is now necessary in the interest of the said Estate that administration of the goods thereof not yet administered should be granted to some fit and proper person.
That your Petitioner is a son of the said Peter Germon Tessier and a grandson of the said Robert Carter, deceased and for a considerable time during the lifetime of the said Peter Germon Tessier managed under his direction the affairs of the Estate of the said Robert Carter deceased and since the decease of the said Peter Germon Tessier has continued and now does manage the same and if appointed as administrator of the goods not yet administered is willing to act as such.
That since the decease of the said Peter Germon Tessier no administration to the Estate of the said Robert Carter has been granted.
Petitioner therefore prays that administration of the goods and effects of the said Robert Carter not yet administered may be granted to him and as in duty bound he will ever pray &c &c &c.

Dated at St. John's this          day of June A.D. 1886.
