On 14th May 1867 ‘Atossa’ arrived at Liverpool.
The Public Ledger newspaper reported that ‘Atossa’ had arrived at Liverpool carrying “Copper from Lota and Wheat from Tome.”
On 16th May 1867 all members of the crew signed or made their mark on the ‘Release at the Termination of a Voyage’ document which stated that “We, the Undersigned Members of the Crew of the said Ship, do hereby release the said Ship and the Master and Owner or Owners thereof from all Claims for Wages or otherwise in respect of the above mentioned Voyage; And I, the Master, do hereby release the said Crew from all Claims in respect of the said Voyage.” The signatures were witnessed by J. Kendall, Deputy Shipping Master.
The Agreement and Account of Crew confirms the discharge of all crew members except the Master and both Apprentices who all ‘remained’ with the ship.
The Official Log Book showed that Clements recorded under the headings ‘Report of Character for General Conduct’ and ‘Report of Character for Ability in Seamanship’ the letters ‘V. G.’ [very good] against each crew members name, with the following exceptions: - David Owens, William H. Treguna, Thomas Jackson and James Hewitt. For Owens and Treguna he entered ‘Yes’ as he was required to do and quoted the page references to their entries in the Official Log. For Jackson and Hewitt, the spaces were left blank but again the pages relevant to their entries were quoted.
A hand written note attached to ‘Atossa’s Log Book reads, “‘Atossa’ Liverpool 16th May 1867 – To the Supt. M. M. Office Liverpool - Sir, With reference to sundry entries in my Official Log which are not properly signed & attested I beg to say that these are omissions which I am sorry should have occurred & will guard against in future.
