I've one "excuse letter" from the owners of the ship to Richard's parents that gives a lot of details. I've also a letter from Hester, the photographer, who tries to sell the photography to Richard's parents. Richard's father name was also Richard, it was a bit confusing to me... Richard Hanze parents spoke and wrote French and English, he wrote his letters in both languages. French for both (Chers parents) and English for his mother and "bonnemama" (Dear mother..) The letter of the owner specified that Percy Buck was send on another ship later. If you need, I can scans of some letters and post them here or send you a copy in good resolution. I'm searching a very good scan of the Hester photography and I think there must be a museum in Tacoma who probably can provide one.
