3588 1887 The mine is sold again.

On April 13 an advertisement in the Cromwell Argus stated that : ' Notice - the undersigned begs to notify that he has sold the Bannockburn Coal Pit to mess'rs Johnson and Andrews, and that he will continue to deliver coal as usual. He would also take this opportunity of thanking his numerous customers for the very liberal patronage received while in the trade, and hopes by strict attention to business and supplying a first rate article to merit and enjoy a continuance of the same. - Signed Wm Parcell ( J P Parcell in his notes talks about his father selling the mine to Johnson and Clarke. The Clarke would have been Alexander Winsloe Norton Clarke - hence the confusion as to whether Clarke or Andrews were in partnership with Robert Johnson )
