Captain Metcalfe 1 Janry 1856 Sir

I returned to Hull last evening word this morning found your reply to Mr. Snowden on the subject of Messrs Bramble of.s letter.- 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 latter 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.

To the Secretary of Marine Department Board of Trade London Sir 5 Jany 1856

I have called the attention of Messers Bramble to the 468th section of the M.S. act as directed but they will decline payment of the Fee and other Expenses amounting to £2 :17:3 as will appear by their annexed letter the first page of which is loaded with very irrelevant matter. It refers to transactions that took place early in October last immediately after the duties of Receiver of Wreck had been transferred to me before I had been supplied with the whole of the necessary forms - on the working of the act is as understood-But with respect to the Vessel Nancy the statement is at Variance with the truth - which will be explained by the inspecting Commander of the Coast - guard should you deem it necessary to place the papers before him. He has verbally contradicted the statement to me - but as it is the usage of the Coast Guard department that all written reports by officers over

of that Branch of the Service pass through the office of the Controller General - he does not feel at Liberty to make any observations on the paper unless it is forwarded to him through the usual channel - By paragraph 52 of your instructions it would appear that to facilitate proceedings in these cases, you contemplate that the officers of the Coast guard should communicate with the receivers of wreck expect in matters involving awards of Salvage or other money payments to officers and Crews of Stations or Cruizers which are to be submitted for the approval of the Commissioner of Customs and the Controller General of the Department as provided for in paragraph 79.- I therefore request your instructions on this point - whether when an ordinary explanation is required from an officer of the Coast guard I am to send the paper to you to be forwarded to him for that purpose through the Department of the Controller general or whether I am in the first instance to request him to afford the necessary explanation I also request your directions as to my proceedings with respect to Messrs Bramble whose bonds for £125 I still hold J S

With reference to paragraph 74 of instructions; I request to be informed whether anchors chains &c taken up in Bridlington Bay and delivered to Masters of Vessels then in Bridlington Harbour without being taken to the admiralty yards need be entered in my Report Book and accounted for in the usual manner J. S.

Marginalia S I think the receiver should be informed that all anchors and cables picked up in Bridlington Bay, by Boats men must be delivered to the receiver unless the vessel losing the anchor is in the roadstead or Harbour at the time of its recovery and the Captain able to Prove the ownership the Boatmen recovering anchors under the latter circumstances should give them up with out the intervention of the receiver but report each case to him of their having done so.
