Board Trade No 2223 [A?] 23 Feby 1859 Marine Dept 126
Referred to [?] [?] Capt [R?]

Vessel "Australian" Killingholme Coastguard for Expenses

The "Australian" sunk in the Humber on the [16?] [Deck Dech?] 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 [cut?] of [s?], Gears
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 [Sas?]
who is Receiver of Wreck for the River Humber per letter dated
22 [deck?Dech?] 1850 No 13380 not to [interfere?].

Duplicate claims were not delivered
to the [S?] or to me. The Captain of the ["Bo?" ships name] 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.
