We have this day issued Certificate for Passage of Mrs. Andrew Fair from Glasgow to New York. Should the Certificate not be used, the money will be refunded, less 10 percent on presentation of this memorandum and the Certificate twelve months from the Date hereof.

Henderson Brothers,

Per

Written in top border: "Office in Glasgow * 45 & 47 Union Street"

Written in Left border: "Office in Leith - Dock Street"

Issue with the Date: The month was not written clearly, but we believe it to be April. Here's Why:

Compare the beginning of the month written above, with their hand-written "Agent" in the bottom-right of the Contract. It appears to begin with an "A." April and August are the two months starting with an "A." We went with April since she arrived in the United States on 11 June 1873.

Note: Reverse side is blank

Note: The original owner of this contract attempted to repair it using scotch tape. It appeared to have separated at some point into three pieces. The alignment is off on the far right section.
