This document has 'Certificate of Discharge' across the top, with the logo of the 'Com. of Council For Trade' in the top left corner. It states that 'Henry Navill' was aged 33 and was born in Dundee. It also states he had been engaged as a 'harpooner' on the 326 ton Dundee registered vessel 'Intrepid', official number 18504 on a voyage to Greenland. Mr Navill had been engaged between the 3rd March 1884 and the 6th September 1884. The Master, Robert Davidson, had signed the bottom of the certificate and in the top and bottom right corders gave Mr Navill a very good character for both ability and conduct.
