Millner Letters

9.2.1914        In reply to your letter of 6th inst I am sorry to hear that your steamer SULTAN met with a mishap below
                Buckby last week……the bend below Brockhall shall receive attention. I am having reports from our lock
                keepers that the men on your steamers are refusing to work the sidelocks at Buckby and on the 11 th January
                and 6th February EMPEROR and COUNT were reported. As we are short of water this is now a serious
                matter.

28.5.1917       I am obliged for your wire and letter of the 26 th inst respecting steamers DUKE, SPEEDWELL, MARQUIS
                – but none have cleared the Buckby stoppage although I gave instructions for the locks to remain open until
                6am. The steamer COUNT was probably the last steamer to clear the stoppage…
