Now that his customers stretched from Ardnamurchan to Stranraer, George Moore used agents on the Scottish coast to help him collect his debts for smuggled goods. The Ballantrae merchant, John Allan, acted as one of these agents. He was also one of Moore’s customers: in November 1757, the boatmaster William Cumming delivered an order of brandy, rum, white wine and claret to him.
