Scope and Content

LETTER: Richard Owens, Hamburg Chambers, Quayside, Newcastle on Tyne to his dear brother and sister. They arrived at Newcastle at 4 o'clock this morning after a splendid passage of 75 hours. He was sadly disappointed that his brother [in-law?] had left home by the time he got there on Wednesday night. If he had received a letter which was at the office he could have been at Liverpool to see him, but there may be a chance yet, as he expects to be discharged about 4 tomorrow afternoon, and will be loading coal from Gravesend and from there to Belfast. Mr. Burdies sends his respects and wishes him a Bon Voyage. They may yet manage to leave the Thames this week, but no time must be lsot. He hopes they are all well at Liverpool. He often thnks how unkind he has been in not writing to him on his long voyage. He hopes his voyage will not be as long this time and that he will have a good run around the Cape. Mr. Burdies has just told him that a vessel has arrived after a 12 month passage due to having to go round the C. of G. Hoe. Adds that he has been troubled awfully with his right shoulder and arm and is under doctor's treatment since 5 weeks.
