Captain Metcalfe 1 Jany 1856
I returned to Hull last evening word
this morning found your reply to Mr Snowden
on the subject of Messrs Bramble & Ss letters.
Of course I must send it to the Board of
Trade, but without your official report it will
be useless. Can you now make an official
report or do you wish their letter to pass to you,
through the Controller General of the Coast
Guard at all times following this letter
course, will cause the loss of much
time. But I have no alternative but
to send the letter forward unless Messrs
Bramble pay the £2. 17. 3
I have an order on the subject of the French
Fishing Boat reducing or rather lopping
off £3 from Lt Stewart's Bill on which you
shall hear further in a few days
