Dr I.H.Dunlap is one of the Fisheries staff.  I cannot find much about him.

Fred Sauter (last part of insert) ran a big family business in New York.  A taxidermy business.  I found a colourful blog post about this.

We have a new scrib who thinks we needed to know that 'Sausalito, Calif.' is in the USA.  :o

Since it comes at the end, you can stop just before it without violating TWYS ;)

at 12.50 delivered R.Villaneuva (M.att.1cl.) to the civil authorities he being charged with passing bogus checks.

He had also recently needed escorting to a police court in S.F. charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

They are still buying more coal from Australia whilst in Alameda.

Sehan (Australia) coal.  [I think it is actually Zeehan in Tasmania]

Thank you.  ;)
