message in bottle about loss of Sundog, April 6th, 1854 at Hallowell - a hoax?

A portion of a vessel was washed ashore on the farm of Mr. John Patterson, about 2 miles west of Oakville, this morning. Upon examination a body was found to be fastened to the wreck. The wreck appears to be part of a cabin, with a window in it, but has not marks to indicate what vessel it belonged to. It was painted white, and the window has a green blind on it. The corpse is that of a man, apparently a Frenchman, about 26 years of age, 5' 8 or 9 inches in height, dark complexion, dark hair, and light moustache. The body is at Oakville.
