Scope and Content

COPY LETTER: Captain Jones, Amlwch to Captain Thomas, Cardiff. He received his letter of the 9th also some vouchers, but not all of them. He states that Captain Thomas acted very unwisely insisting on having the men tried by Naval Court and he considers it £15.16s.8d. thrown away for nothing. If he had to pay this amount himself no doubt he would have acted differently. He asks for an explanation about the 40 milreis for assisting in putting the ballast on board. He finds by the mate's log that he has entered the names of all the men that were discharging cargo and that agrees with the voucher which Captain Thomas got from the consignee. There were only 3 men for the 14th February assisting in taking in ballast. He states that Captain Thomas must have made a mistake in charging 40 milreis. The consignee paid 21 for discharging the cargo and 120 for ballast. Asks why the fee for assistance for putting on the ballast was not on the same bill. The stevedore's charge at Natal for loading sugar is exorbitant. He requests certain documents sent to him. If Captain Thomas goes away before he settles, he will send the money to Mrs. Thomas, but first he must have everything clear.
