Captain Lodge

Dear Sir:

“Golden Gate”

I enclose you “Authority” – letter of credit – and copy of a letter which explains itself.

I have just discussed it with one of the firm of Faulkner Bell & Co. who wrote by this mail today you will settle the matter if it merits of being settled with them.

A pleasant voyage! And success!

Faithfully yours,

I.A.W. Harper
