History

The Harmony, Schooner from the Shannon to Gloucester was struck by a heavy sea during a gale on the 17th of March which carried away her boats, &c. After this the sea made clean breaches over her.

On the 19th the S.S.Darien bore up and took the crew off, the Harmony then being in a sinking state. The first boat the Darien sent out was accidentally capsized, and three men were drowned the second boat succeeded in saving the whole of the crew five.
