NEWSPAPER LIST OF CARGO DETAILS.

This newspaper cutting gives an idea of the cargo on board the Waratah. The list is incomplete in that some contents were not possible to decipher from the original newspaper cutting. But the insurance of 200 000 pounds gives a clear impression that the Waratah was carrying a significant cargo load.
