Major Layard, Beverly. 8th March 1858.

Sir, I beg to acquaint you that recently a large quantity of Foreign Tallow has been cast on shore on the Coast in the neighbourhood of Hornsea (a few miles North & South of that place) The whole of it should have been delivered into the Custody of the Revenue of Wreck for the district, of which the inhabitants on the Coast are well aware – However such as not been the case a portion has been clandestinely brought to Hull and melted down. I have therefore impounded the proceeds, and I was informed yesterday that a portion had also found its way to Beverley. I therefore sent two Officers to your town to endeavour to get possession of it. They called at the shop of Mr Westoby Tallow Chandler Market place, who satisfactorily accounted for the quantity he has in his possession. They also called at the shop of Mr Ormslow who had not any. But at the shop of Mr Yates there was 7 cwt. As Mr Yates was not at home they could obtain no explanation about it, they therefore requested your superintendant of Police Mr Daniel Dove to again call and make enquiry about the matter. They also requested Mr Dove to see the country mounted Police, and request that the

Hornsea Van might be watched as well as any other road leading to Beverley from Holderness The information is correct as it came to me indirectly from a person to whom some of the tallow had been offered. Mr Yates purchased the 7 cwt he has from Brandesburton whose premises it would be well to search in order to ascertain what quantity of the Tallow in question he has in his possession, and how he accounts for the same. I was not aware that you resided at Beverley as would have written yesterday and requested you to direct assistance to be afforded my officers in their search. You will oblige by taking such steps in this matter as you may deem proper, and apprize me of the result.
