Note.--The amount dumped ^[[mushy fish [[?]] Cobbs letter Nov. 9-14]] is merely approximate as these fish are not weighed.

The San Juan Fish & Packing Company purchased the cargoes of the Daisy (Aug.25) [[strikethrough]]and the Senator (Sept.7),[[/strikethrough]] while it owns the San Juan.^[[& Starr.]]  The company states the slips containing the records of these cargoes have been destroyed.^[[San Juan's catch is quantity reported by captain when he arrived.]]

Couldn't find the date of the LaPaloma trip, but think it must have been in September.

I am not sure that this is complete as the buyers pay very little attention to where the fish come from.  Should I hear of any additional will let you know.
