Rabaul 27th October 1914
Dear Mr Mouton
I recieved yours of yesterday. I saw the "Harriet Alice" at anchour at Kaewieng.that has been some weeks at liberty to proceed to Kinigunan.
I spoke to Captain Robinson and advised him to return at once. Copy of letter to him. Rabaul - [indecipherable] Captain Robinson.
You are advised to proceed to Kinigunan at once a fair northerly wind is blowing a start you should take advantage of.
Major Heritage also advised him to return his [indecipherable] was stopped and if he did not leave by the [indecipherable] - his shore leave would be stopped. I believe he only had two recruits onboard. I had their vessels the [indecipherable] "Sian" and Sch. "Mathope" and "Santon" to bring to Rabaul otherwise I would have towed the Harriet Alice back.
I wrote you on arrival here & posted a letter from Capt Robinson.
I am leaving Thursday at [indecipherable] am for Kaewieng in the "Meklong" Any return labour for Kaewieng you cna send by me.
We captured the [indecipherable] [indecipherable] [indecipherable] at Kalili Bay.
