In justice to the memory of the deceased, we have been requested to publish the following : S.b. Dupleiz, 24th August, 1889. I, William Christie (chief engineer), and I, Alexander Cullen (second), do hereby vouch that the letter that appeared in the Dunedin papers—which was copied from a Sydney paper —concerning Captain Joseph Hansby when in Cook Strait is not correct, we interviewed him after the disturbance as early as we knew of such, and found him duly sober. We can also testify as to his sobriety on the night of bis death, as was proved at the inquest. It was quite true that jealousy existed between the chief mate and the captain. (Signed) W. Christie, Chief Engineer. Alkx. Cullbn, Second Engineer. Witness to signatures— John P. Coebiqal, Carpenter, s.s. Dupleix.
