Letter from John COOK to his wife as written.

We take the following sad memento of a lost vessel and her crew from an English paper:-"The wife of the mate of the missing screw steamer Well, of Hull, has received a letter from her husband, stating that the vessel was foundering with all her crew, and that the ship was overladen. The letter, which was washed ashore at Lybster on the 12th inst, is worded thus: 'December 21, 1876.- My dear wife and son,- We are laid to in the North Sea, about 100 miles from the Holman, with our hatch stove in and gangway gone. The sea is fearful- it is washing in and out of the main hatchway, and washing the linseed out of the hold. It happened at 4 a.m. this morning. My dear, we have the boat swinging all ready for lowering,
but we dare not for the sea. There is no water in the after-hold, and the engines are going ahead to pump the water out. I am afraid it is to no purpose. I don't think we shall live the night out. Pray to God to forgive us our sins, for we have many. My dear wife a! nd son- it is a painful thing to write to you both to say that I expect every moment to be my last. The ship was too deep down to Plimsoll's mark. Ships ought not to be allowed to load so deep. Good bye- God bless you both, and I hope he will protect you; and tell John to be a good boy and keep honest and sober.- Your affectionate husband, John COOK, chief mate s.s. Wells, of Hull.-130, Day Street, Hull. Kind love to all.'"
