- Full Text
On Friday, Nov. 5th, 2 fish boats, the HAWKEYE and the ALICE, each
containing 2 men, left Duncan City bound for Hammond's Bay. When off Forty-
mile Pt. the boats were swamped, and 3 men drowned. Their names were
Harrington, Young and Turner. The fourth man, by name of McQuarry, clung to
his boat until she drifted 10 miles to Crawford's dock, when he was rescued.
He was so much exhausted by his exposure that he became insensibke, and
remained so for nearly 10 hours.
