SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE.- The Brigantine Charles Souchay, Lewis, of Caernarvon from this port to Whitehaven with superphosphate was abandoned on the 18th inst., in a sinking condition crew landed at Limerick. The Captain of the above vessel desires to express the thanks of himself and crew for the kind and humane treatment they experienced from Captain H.T Spuring of the screw steamer Limerick and his gallant crew who at the imminent risk of their lives nobly volunteered to extricate them from their dangerous position the only boat the Charles Souchay had being stove and perfectly useless and the vessel in a sinking state with bulwarks washed away rendering it impossible to stand at the pumps and over five feet water in the hold which was fast increasing the position of the Charles Souchay being then about sixty five miles from the Irish coast. Capt. Lewis also feels greatly indebted as well as his crew for the kind treatment received on board the Limerick.
The Ipswich Journal. Saturday, March 30. 1867
Note : The News paper reports do not give a location for the Abandonment of this vessel, but given the voyage of the Charles Souchay, Ipswich to Whitehaven. I will assume their paths crossed somewhere off the South Coast.
