William McNellie purchased brandy from George Moore. This was delivered to Ballantrae by the boatmaster, John McNish. The following year, Moore sent McNellie ten dozen bottles of claret and four casks of brandy. When he did not pay his debts, McNellie was sued by Moore in the Chancery Court on the Isle of Man.
