Notary Public, Liverpool.

Affidavit of Margaret Marshall. I, Margaret Marshall, of No. 29'Benseidi street, Liverpool, say I am the wife of David Marshall. My husband was one of the firemen on the steamer Shenandoah, late in command of Captain Waddell

. He went out from Liverpool in the Laurel and joined the Shenandoah at the island of Deserta, near Madeira, and remained on her during the whole cruise, and left her only after her arrival at Liverpool last month. His wages were £7 per month. They gave bim a half-pay note for me; it was sent to me by my husband from Madeira. It was for £3 108. per month, made payable to me. It was payable at the office of Fraser, Trenholm & Co., Liverpool, No. jo Rumford place. It was paid regularly every month while he was gone, up to the 18th day of October last, on which day the last payment was made to me-I mean October 18, 1865. Mr. Robinson was the cashier in the office of Fraser, Trenholm & Co., who made some payments to me. The payments were made to me in person. They took my half-pay note from me at the office and now have it.
