Auckland Star, 1th June 1891.
Capt. Burgess, Harbourmaster,
who met with a painful accident through a fall on a vessel in the harbour the other day, is still confined to his residence at the North Shore, and is progressing fairly well, considering the severe bruising and shaking he received.

Press Association Telegram, 31st January 1894
A Special Committee of the Auckland Harbour Board recommend that the services of Captain Burgess, Chief Harbourmaster, be dispensed with, and that his duties and those of wharfinger be performed by Captain Duder at 300 per annum. Several smaller increases, leaving a saving of 200 per annum, are recommended. The Board adopted the report of the Committee retrenching the official expenditure by 200.
Captain Burgess' services as Harbourmaster will be dispensed with at the end of the year and the Deputy Harbourmaster, Captain Duder, will perform the duties of both offices.
