STEAMER ECUADOR CARD
San Francisco, August 23, 1850. To Robert Stoutter, Jr., Esq. Dear Sir: The undersigned, passengers on the steamship Ecuador (of which you are the agent) from Panama to this place, having had the pleasure of your company during the voyage, and witnessed your unremitting efforts to promote the comfort and convenience of all on board, without distinction, take this mode of conveying to you the expression of their gratitude for those efforts, as well as for the uniform and gentlemanly kindness which has always accompanied them. We take great pleasure in stating that, notwithstanding the delay at San Blas, of ten days (a delay unavoidable, and for which neither yourself nor the skillful and intelligent officers in command of the ship are responsible) the trip was a pleasant one, and that they are highly satisfied with the ship, for its safety and expedition, its accommodation and management.
To Captain Downes, and the officers under him, we likewise tender him, through you, the expression of our respect for them as gentlemen, and our confidence in them as skillful and experienced navigators.
In addressing you this communication we have taken counsel of our feelings and sense of justice to you, as we are aware that the accidental delay in t his the first trip of your vessel, might be misunderstood or misrepresented to the injury of the enterprise in which you have embarked for the success of which you have our most cordial wishes.
