The second section is larger, and is titled "Master or Conductor's Oath on Clearing Outward. District of Willamette and Port of Portland, Oregon." The captain of the ship was Henry Lawrence, whose signature appears on the manifest several times.
The inside register shows that the Peter Iredale was loaded with "49,515 sacks of wheat", with a value of $89,000, at the Port of Portland, headed for Falmouth or Queenstown in the United Kingdom.
*The Wreck of the Peter Iredale occurred on October 25, 1906, here on the Clatsop Spit near Fort Stevens. Captain Henry Lawrence was caught in the mist and wind and pushed ashore. The ship was returning from England, had stopped in Mexico, and was on its way to Portland for more wheat.
