p.2 The Ocean Wave Disaster - The Picton Sun of Tuesday has the following communication from Mr. Ross:-

Man Found - The body of a man was found yesterday near Philly Dulmages, on the Marysburgh shore, supposed to be one of those who perished by the burning of the ill-fated steamer Ocean Wave, on the morning of the 30th April last. A considerable number of papers principally relating to land markets were found in his pockets; from these it appears evident that his name was Samuel Danby, of Young, in the County of Leeds. His papers, coat and boots are in my possession. The body will be decently interred today. All the money found on his body was one five dollar bill and one shilling and nine pence in change. I have sent a letter directed to his heirs or relatives. Please give intelligence to his friends wherever they may be. He was apparently about 55 years old, slightly bald, about 5 feet 8 inches in height, with a small scar on the back of his left hand.

Yours, etc., John Rose.
