in the selection or retention of your
empIpyeVarid wouW toot have entere4
this protest if Captain Thompsoji bAd
been given a' substantial j-ejf oi or
his 'dismissal. "
'Captain Thompson states to us un
der oath, that "when I asked Mr. J
Kennedy for , .toe reajson of ny dis
charge 'he Informed 'me "that there
were several; tr jat least there "were
several complaints about me from
plantation" managers; "he also said
that I was too Wd and couldn't do the
work that I used to." ,
Injustice is Alleged."
we feel thaV a great injustice is be
ing done to Captain Thompson through
your listening "to complaints . mm
landsmeji, yho n cur pplnjop are not
competent, to Judge of A ac?aod OjfU
cer's ability, any more -than a layman
is capable pf fudging a doctor's ability,
or any other professional man, and in
many instances .these . complainants
axe wiifujly pirejudiced against the
faster because he . will not navigate
his vessel to suit thc.ir y lews.
CaptAln Thompson is ignorant of
his accusers, as Air. Kennedy has re
fused to divulge their names, we would
therefore most respectfully reou93t1
that if you have any knowledge nhere
Captain Thompson has been negligent
in his duty, or has been lacking In
judgment In caring for your interest.
that; you furnish this Harbor wiih
some evidence oi this neglect, also a
copy of the complaints as mentioned
in your letter, with the names of the
persons whom you say have iLvesti
gated Captain Thompson' and found
him lacking in judgment, etc.
Complaint is Made.
In response to Mr. Kennedy's state
ment that "He couldn't do the work
that he used tohe does not deny, for
the reason that yoUr steamers are not
supplied with the quality of seamen,
. 4 V M - ' 1

Thia Is a common complaint in our

Ve have called your aileafi$n to and

further financial loss to your company
and perhaps disaster as well, also the
deterioration cf some of your vessels
through age. which maks it practical
ly impossible for the masters to main
tain Xke standard established in the
past ,
We feel that masters are being
blamed for Incompetency, when In our
opinion the blame should be place!
elsewhere, namely, the system yoli
cuiiipau emiMeys n auppiymg crews
to your vessels. ' ' " ""
It is commonly reported that all the
good men, men that have been trained
in the past to perform good work, have
nearly all left your employ, so that
now we are receiving' In their places

to make up our complement of a crew.
