Scope and Content

xLETTER: William Hillary, Fort Anne, Isle of Man to Rev. James Williams, secretary to the Shipwreck Institution, Llanfairynghornwy Rectory. He apologises for not writing. When his lifebuoys are to be had they will be glad to avail themselves of one for each of their lifeboats. He suggests that 3 or 4 beckets or hoops should be placed around the middle of the buoy to give a secure hold to anyone who reaches it. The size could be further increased. Experience will show whether the addition of a lead weight at one end would be advantageous. The winter has been severe and some lives have been lost off their coast.
