The Body of C.

The mother of the young man resides at Port Credit, Ontario, and it will be an act of charity for any person who may hear of the recovery of the body to communicate with her.

Pardee, M.P.P., James Taylor, Mayor of Sarnia, Mr. Johnson, Assistant Commissioner of Customs, Ottawa, and a few leading gentlemen of Sarnia, visited Windsor on her by the invitation of Capt. G.H. Wyatt, who was on board. The Prince Alfred came through the St. Clair channel - which is not taken out of the contractor's hands yet - therefore not opened to public use. She also passed a United States Government steamship surveying the mouth of a channel on the Canada shore.
