p.4 From An Amiable Captain - Ottawa, Jan. 22nd - To the Editor - I find a paragraph in your paper of 20th inst. to the effect that the schooner Hanlan is held for $1,200 as a selling price. I never authorized a statement to that effect, and I request you to contradict it. When I wish to sell I will inform those who intend to purchase of the price and conditions of sale.

Respectfully yours, Robert Craig.
