Sir

With reference to the latter part of your circular of the 13 October last, whereby you direct that duplicate copies of the Forms sent to your department, should be kept by the Receiver I beg to acquaint you that the immediate delivery of anchors, and parts of Chain Cable Cables to the Masters of Vessels who may lose them in Bridlington Bay will be of frequent occurence, and invoke a large expenditure of Form W 13 - And as I had but 10 forms of that number in the first instance, such supply was quite inadequate to the requirements of the service - I will therefore thank you to direct a supply of 3 quires to be forwarded to me, which judging from the quantity of wreck in preceding years may be sufficient to last through the coming winter months.

Letter to Sectry Marine Dept Bd Trade Respecting Fees All expenses incurred must be charged to the owners, also the proper fee for the deposition also by way of percentage 3 guineas unless the Collector his deputy have been put to more trouble than appears by these papers. T.H. Farrer. 11/Dec/55 The Collectal Hull In this case a deposition was not taken - the Inspg Comm of the C. Guard not feeling himself authorysed by the M.S. Act 1854 to take such deposition. I will therefore thank you to inform me with reference to the 445 Sect of the Act whether he has such power or with reference to 448 Sectn whether a declaration can be taken only by a Receiver or by a Justice. And also as no deposition was taken whether one should be charged for of course all expenses incurred will be charged and I presume the 3 guineas I am to charge is under the sanction of the last paragraph of the Table of Fees at page 105.

Guard Stations, with a re quest that they may be filled up and sent to me as wreck may happen to be driven ashore, of which I send you one annexed, and of which I trust you will approve. J.S. J.M.
