Vessel "Australian" Killingholme Coastguard for Expenses

The "Australian" sunk in the Humber on the 16 Decb last a little above Killingholme and as soon as the officer and men of the Killingholme Coast Guard Station became acquainted therewith they immediately proceeded to her to afford such as-sistance as might be in their power - and also to protect the Revenue should there be any goods subject to duty.

They saved some four articles of Sails, Gear &c and also one box of oranges which was sent to the Custom House.

The other duty performed by the Coast Guard Officers was for protection of Revenue, as you directed Mr Saxelbye who is Receiver of Wreck for the River Humber per letter dated 22 Decb 1858 No 13380 not to interfere.

Duplicate claims were not delivered to Mr Saxelbye or to me. The Captain of the "Cornwallis" the Coast Guard Ship in the Humber is best able to state whether the duty was performed for which allowances are covered by the annexed papers. JS
