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 26 and was born in Dundee. It also states he had been engaged as a 'BS and Skeamanr' on the 278 ton Dundee registered vessel 'Victor', official number 19540 on a voyage to the Whale Fishing. Mr Navill had been engaged between the 7th March 1878 and the 3rd November 1878. The Master, William Adam, signed the bottom of the certificate and on the reverse had given Mr Navill a very good character for both ability and conduct.
