Scope and Content

LETTER: Captain John Thomas, Bryngwyn, Moylegrove, via Cardigan, South Wales to Captain Jones, Amlwch. He notes the contents of letter received from him and asks him to send any further letters to above address. As Captain Jones thinks he was wrong in insisting on having the men tried by Naval Court he is willing to pay half the expenses. He did everything to the best of his ability the whole time he was on the ship. The Consul advised him to take the men back on board so that he would have no trouble with them. The cook as he said before, was a desperate character. He was in prison at Cardiff once for taking sailors out of ships and another time for stealing a captain's watch. He was running for a boarding house when seen at Pernambuco, and has taken a good many sailors out of ships giving the Consul plenty of trouble. Asks for a reference for the time he served on the "Lord Tredegar".
