Post, of the Niagara Fire Insurance company, New York, thanking him for kindly offices while aboard the Algerian. He writes of his trip: My praises of the trip shall be loud, my efforts shall always be strong to induce any of my friends to make the trip, and, if possible, to get aboard your staunch and well-manned ship. Being far away from home and among strangers your kindness to us was a feature that we shall not soon forget. This is Mr. Batten's 1st year as captain.
