'It is feared that the crew have perished'


A daily taste of Newfoundlandia

“On Monday last, the wreck of a large boat, newly painted, drove past Cape Spear. The wind had prevailed from the northward for some days before, and the probability is that the boat was coming from one of our northern ports. It is feared that the crew have perished.”

The Conception Bay Man, Harbour Grace, September 1857.
