Vessel "Capital" Board of trade Marine Department Minute Paper P1414 Registered 30 Jany 1860 Referred to Mr Farrer Capt Robertson

The Receiver of Wreck Custera House, Hull For his report J.H. Farrer 30 Jany 1860

208 The Wreck of the "Capital" took place on the morning of the 26th October last, - and as all persons on board were drowned she was taken possession of - on my behalf by the Coast Guard Officer in the district. But Mr Scott,one of the owners who lives near Wakefield,having been telegraphed for - was on the spot early on the 27th and directed Mr Clarkson to act for him in his absence. - During the time Mr Scott remained he identified the bodies of the master, mate and females who were washed on shore and conducted their funerals.

Therefore, as the Vessel be - was but a short time in my charge - and the loss being - in a pecuniary point of view - a very severe one - I am of opinion that this is a case in which the charge of commission on the value of the property saved might be waived James Sparrow C.H.
