The undersigned, Captains of the two boats' crews, who went in pursuit of the vessels escaped from the harbor, on the morning of Sunday, the 8th inst., take this method of expressing for themselves and companions, their heartfelt thanks to the owners of the schooner Thomas Kingsford, Messrs. John Collins and C.C. Abbey, for the prompt and generous manner in which they have made compensation for our services and that of the crews.
Oswego, Feb. 13, 1857.
The amount paid to the heroic sailors, we understand, was $540, which was distributed among them pro rata. This was an act of generous liberality on the part of the gentlemanly owners, and does honor to their reputation as enterprising business men. We hope their generosity may be rewarded by uninterrupted good fortune and prosperity in the future. They will ever be remembered by the generous sailors, we have no doubt, and have their best wishes.
