Scope and Content

LETTER: Lewis, Heron & Co, Shipowners, 19 Fenchurch Ave., London, E.C. to Captain Robert Jones, Ship "Owenee", Adelaide. They wrote to him last on the 24th Dec. which they beg to confirm and they were very glad to have word of his safe arrival at the Semaphore on the 4th inst. They have not yet chartered his ship homewards as they cannot obtain a rate that will pay its way, but they will hang on until the last minute before taking on a coal freight. They feel sure he has fully realised the desparate positionof things in general, and remind him that if loading grain for home they should be running £4,000 uninsured. They have received cheque for £2 from Mr. Stringfield which he wishes Captain Jones to advance to apprentice Stringfield in small sums at his discretion.
