History

TOTAL WRECK OF FLORENCE GRAHAM
LOSS OF THE CAPTAIN MATE AND TEN SEAMEN.

Yesterday evening the sad intelligence reached Liverpool of the total wreck of the ship Florence Graham on the Inch Bar Dingle Bay County Kerry late on Thursday afternoon. The ill fated vessel was bound from Rio Bento a port on the west coast of Africa to Liverpool and had on board a large cargo African produce.

The despatch announcing the melancholy tidings is brief but it states that out of a crew of 17 only five are saved those who perished being the captain first officer and ten of the crew. The bay in which the wreck took place is completely open to the swell of the Atlantic and has been the scene of many dismal shipwrecks and it is generally believed that the ill fated vessel was driven ashore in the bay during the heavy gales of Thursday. The vessel is a complete wreck and her cargo was floating about the bay.
