BRIG REGIA, PORT SAN FRANCISCO, August 29th, 1849. CAPTAIN JOHNSON — Sir, — We now at the termination of our voyage, which although we at one time considered protracted has nevertheless been more speedy and successful than that of any vessel which preceeded us, beg to express our sincere thanks for the kindness you have shewn us throughout and the attention you have in every case paid to our wants. Although perhaps we are exceeding our bounds in making any remark with respect to the navigation of the vessel, we cannot omit mentioning the able manner in which, notwithstauding the dense fog by which we have been surrounded, and the very defective chart which you had to guide you, you have brought us safely into port. We heartily congratulate you on your safe arrival, and with our best wishes for your future welfare and happiness we beg to subscribe ourselves, Yours, very truly, H. N. Greenwell, W. H. Wyatt, Charles Steuart, Wm. Smith. Thomas Kington, C. J. Tibbey, Jr., John Fairweathe...
