p.5 Word From Main Ducks - A letter to Simon Cole, Milford, was picked up on the north side of Stony Island in a bottle with others on January 5th. The bottle was found by Orvis Luff. Among other things the writer said: "Suppose you heard of the wreck of the John E. Hall. The tug Ferris was here looking for her. We found her cupboard and two sculling oars and pieces of her house, and a life preserver that had been tied on some poor fellow. The strap the arm goes through had broken and let him fall out. The strap that goes around the body was still tied. It has on it in large letters, "Prop. John E. Hall."

p.8 Incidents of the Day - Capt. Robert Clapp, of the steamer Chicora, was suddenly stricken with a serious illness on Tuesday, at Picton. The captain had just returned from Toronto that day.
