Scope and Content

LETTER: John Thomas, Rio Grande de Norte to Captain Jones, "Lord Tredegar", Amlwch informing him that the vessel is loaded and down at Natal. They were four days coming down the river. They have about 450 tons of sugar. They are bound to New York and trust they have a quick passage. They expect to leave tomorrow. It is a bad place to get out of, and some ships have been detained for some time. They hope to get a good freight at new York. It is a very expensive port. The freights are down to 14s per ton at Pernambuco. He encloses copy of account. He has not settled yet, the wages of the two men paid off at Pernambuco and expense of court are not included. He has a fair crew now, but really sailors do as they like and the masters have no protection.
