                 Nov 1st showing much to their
                 [p 75] regret, balance in ship's favour now £185.0.5 has with four cargoes carried but
                 increased by a few pounds.

                   Letter contd. from p.66 [sic] Recd. from Franz Rahtkens
                   The extremely low rates of freight still prevalent, & the continued heavy back calls of the
                   Mutual Insurance Clubs are, of course, mainly to blame, & whilst these may be more easily
                   borne by larger more modern boats it seems, with the low freights now ruling & the S. S. John
                   Redhead's general impracticability & heavy consumption, so impossible to do any further good
                   that we would suggest to our co-owners to sell the boat as speedily as possible. We are the
                   more persuaded to make this proposal as No. 3 Survey, always heavy & costly, is now due, &
                   as there are no funds in hand to betray it. Will you be kind enough to favour us with your
                   views as early as possible.

                   [p 76} Copy of letter recd. July 22nd 1895 from Messrs. Franz Rahtkens & Co. - we have not
                   yet been favoured with your reply to our circular of the 6th. inst. & would now beg to submit
                   the proposal already assented to by a large majority, of selling the boat to a Norwegian
                   Company of limited liability to which we shall be glad to receive your consent. Scrip would be
                   issued for your share, & of course afford complete security. - Several of our neighbours have
                   already done so with considerable advantage. (signed F. Rahtkens)

  2/7/1894    49 Copy of letter containing instructions re the Carl Gottfried Muller case to Mr. Letzner
                 To Rechts-Anwalt Letzner, Chemnitz

                  Dear Sir,
                  In answer to your letter June 19th enclosed a true statement of Mr. O. G. Muller's indebtedness
                   to the Exec. of the late Charles Russ £4532.8.5 as per bills handed over to you & there can be
                   no question of its truthfulness and admittance by the Court, we hope. We notice your receipt
                  mentions only 16 bills whereas you recd. 17, one more of £100 - per 31 of August which
                  surely you will find with the others.
                  So the gross amount of the bills is £4602.8.5 of which Mr. Muller paid £70 Rests due £4532.8.5

                 Respecting the question of interests it is the law in Gt. Britain that in case of accepted bills
                 there is no rebate for interests we presume that this is the same in Germany however this
                 question you will know best to decide.
                 Enclosed please find power of attorney with strict instruction not to accept less than 33 1/3%
                 in cash or very short payments. Carl Hermann Muller is of course liable for the amount & you
                 will have to proceed against him unless at the meeting July 5 you settle with 33 1/3% cash as
                 said above. Awaiting your news promptly we are yours truly
                 signed 3 fold
13/11/1894    61 Mr. Muhlberg went to Chemnitz Agreed with Mr. Hosel, Trustee of the Bankruptcy Estate of
                 Otto George Muller that our claim be received, deducting interest, for M 80,479.50 pf.
                 =£3945.1.6 subject to O. G. Muller paying 20% Cash himself or guaranteed by his father and
                 subject to the trustees of the late C. Russ dropping their claim on Carl Muller.
