at Bridlington I have written him a note saying I cannot comply with his request I did not mention your name, but should you know the applicant, Mr. Whiteing, you will probably have the goodness to explain that by the 445 Sec of the M.S. Act 1854 & paragraph 12 of the Instructions supplied with G O 106/1855, I have no power to nominate a Deputy where there is a Customs or Coast Guard establisment

see G O 106/1855

"The C&C however at those Ports within which there are outlying places having neither officers of the Customs nor Coast Guard stationed thereat, And with respect to which Districts special directions may be needed, are to submit forthwith such arrangement as may be desirable for the performance of the duties prescribed by the Act & the Instructions above mentioned,"

You will therefore perceive that {yo} were your establishment not at Bridlington I should have to go to the Board on the matter

Be so good as to return Mr. Whitings letter

O. 106/1855 I have no power to comply with his request when offrs. of the Coast G. are in the neigbourhood

With respect to that part of your letter received this morning with reference to Mr. Shacklocks objections to have anything to do

the matter, - you will see by the GO 106/1853 =[?] mentd. that when any of your establishment are in the district -- I am powerless to nominate any other party.--I am therefore of opinion you had better bring the subject under notice of the A Genl & point out how incompatible it will be with Mr. Shacklocks other duties -- & if you like so to do - name some on as a proper person to undertake the duties. -
