Scope and Content

CIRCULAR LETTER: R.H. Roberts, 32 Mulgrave Street, Liverpool, to [ Captain Jones] referring to the letter of the late Master of the ship Alliance also to his last memo. He makes no reference at present to the letters in respect of the "Alliance" except this, that they are actionable and a gross libel calculated to bring discredit on him, both socially and commercially. He holds Thomas & Evans, each responsible for their individual action as well as their combined action re ship "Alliance". He could not possible on moral or legal grounds attend a meeting of his co-owners brought together convened by the builders who have failed to carry out their contract with him on the building of the ship and from whom he is claiming compensation for their deviation to be settled by arbitration. His late partner knew of his claim and knows what they did when working together. Evans & Co. decline to do anything except try for the second time to take the management of the ship from him because they own 13/64th of his and his late partner owns 4/64th. He protests against their action and asks to have the matter reviewed. He has not received any of the money claimed from Mr. Wm. Thomas since he has taken legal proceedings to recover same. He hopes to convene a meeting for Friday next to explain matters and meet R & I Evans and Mr. Thomas. "Alliance" arrived Malparaiso 16th inst. "Mary Roberts" sailed from Falmouth for Hamburg. Outward freight continue for good.
