TO THE

DC

S GENTLEMEN,



The meeting of the Honorable
House of Commons having been deferred on
account of the death of the Speaker's Bro-
ther, on the very day on which the Company's
Petition against the St. Katharine's Dock
oo Bill was intended to be presented, by which

CO

22 accidental circumstance the Directors have
^ been deprived of the privilege of being heard
az in behalf of the great interests confided to
< them, I feel it incumbent on me to bring
together, for the information of yourselves
and the Public at large, the Petitions which
have been presented to the House, and the
Evidence by which it was proposed to sup-
port the allegations therein contained, " that
" additional Docks are neither required by the
S3" state of the Commerce of the Port of Lon-
g" don ; — by the burthen of the Rates and
a=" Charges upon the landing, housing, bonding,

" and shipping of goods ; — by any existing ob-
" struction to the navigation of the river
" Thames, or want of accommodation for load-
" ing and unloading of Vessels; — nor, by the
" want of further competition among the Dock
" Companies already established."

I have the honour to be,

GENTLEMEN,

Your most obedient Servant,
S. COCK.

London :
14 April, 1825.
