Millner Letters
6.2.1912        At the bottom we have one wide boat and one pair of coal boats going south three pairs of Fellows including
                a steamer ADMIRAL with goods at the top going south. Also 4 pairs of empty boats going to Braunston. I
                have been to Braunston this afternoon & Mr Cope informs me that the Canal Co are not going to run the Ice
               boat as boats are not going to follow – Fellows have two steamers there but no buttys for them. Also 4
               loaded boats with empty barrels on for this way Mercer/Millner

28.8.1912      Re Raising Sunken boat at Linford. I am pleased to hear that you were able to raise Messrs Sefton’s coal
               boat MAY without interference to the traffic. Let me have an account of the cost to the Company which will
               be sent to Messrs Sefton in due course, and I should advise them to try and recover the amount from Messrs
               Fellows, Morton & Co as the sinking was due to their steamer ADMIRAL not easing down when passing.

24.8.1917      FMC’s steamer ADMIRAL steerer P Littlemore and butty boat VERBENA , George Jones running into the
               top inside gate of Lock 8 at Buckby at 10.30 pm August 21 st 1917 and breaking the gate bumper and
               otherwise straining the gate. There was no lockfiller ahead of the boats and at the time our night lockkeeper
               was drawing off the water and the lock was ¾ full. The lockkeeper shouted for the steamer to stop. The
               boats were coming at such a pace that the tow rope broke and the butty crashed into the gate. Had the lock
               been empty the gate might have been knocked down. The butty boat had no fender on the fore end otherwise
               the damage might have been less. I would suggest Geo Jones be fined 10/- for the damage.

12.9.1917      …the Blisworth Tunnel SPIDER was towing the 3pm pull from Stoke Bruerne when Messrs Fellows Morton
               Clayton’s steamer ADMIRAL, P Littlemore, ran into the tug and bent the iron stem guard, crushed in the oak
               stem bar and sprung the sheering on top of the foredeck so that the tug will have to go into dock for the
               damage to be made good. . The collision occurred near the 2000 yard plate. The tug was against the tunnel
               wall on the offside (being her right side) and the ADMIRAL must have been across the tunnel. Both tug and
               steamer had sounded their whistles so the steerer knew of their proximity. Littlemore’s mate was steering
               and I understand the atmosphere was thick, but all the same the steamer should have kept its right side. I
               consider a claim should be made for the damage when the cost of repairs has been ascertained. I have not
               reported this to the General Manager
