Scope and Content

LETTER: Hugh Jones, Rectory, Beaumaris to Rev. James Williams, Llanfairynghornwy concerning the amount of money it would cost to send iron bars by rail. He will help carry any of the plans into execution. They cannot afford to let the present materials slip through their hands. The letter is continued on 26 February: He received his letter that morning and immediately got the names of the saved from the Captain. He is unsure how to fill in the forms sent to him. He has the bills but does not like to enclose them because of the postage. He has written to the Admiralty concerning the £2 which the Accountant General of the Navy has been ordered to pay him. He will send the letters and that received from Captain Beechy on to him. He discusses newspaper accounts of the behaviour of the men in rescuing the crew of the Liverpool. The town clerk informs him that a specific Act of Parliament empowers 3 magistrates to compel the owners of a vessel to remunerate the crews of boats for saving lives.
