Scope and Content

COPY LETTER: Robert Jones, Amlwch to E.R. Evans & Co., London informing them that he received a letter from Captain Thomas yesterday dated 12th March with the following information "Sailed March 10th in charge of pilot. Vessel struck on rocks, endeavoured to get her off but failed. Discharged cargo as much as possible - the ship filling with water. Could only save few hundred bags. The vessel's back broken and full of water. Main rails broken in several places. Main rigger carried away. Top mast fallen over the side and decks busted up. Recommended that the vessel be sold for the benefit of all concerned, as the vessel was considered a wreck. Have managed to save some of the gear and sail. Afraid wreck not worth much". He will let them know if he hears anything further.
