Dear Mr. Marquette,
By the S.S. "Canada" leaving Liverpool

if you will kindly arrange for them to be met and looked after as usual,

Authorities. Many of them will have cards from Mr. Obed. Smith, but
those who have been paid for privately will have my certificate to
this effect. I will send you a complete list of all the party together
with a draft for landing money by the next mail.
