Toronto Correspondence - The Foam - The loss of the Foam and her unfortunate crew, the tidings of which was telegraphed to the News, has cast a gloom over the city and the greatest sympathy is felt for the relations and friends of the young gentlemen who met with so untimely an end. This, with the many other serious accidents which have happened in connection with boating on the lake, we trust will be a warning to the young men of our city, who on Sundays and public holidays show such a desire for aquatic sports.
