Concerning a case of salvage. In September 1748, a vessel owned by the defenders, and laden with wheat, was stranded on the sea coast near Red-car, near the port of Stockton. Salvage was effected by John Wilson and others but a dispute arose about reimbursement. This is the reply of the Edinburgh merchants to the complaint in item 56.
