Drowned in Atlantic

Found August 1914, Larne Lough, County Antrim.

In a stoppered bottle, written in pencil on a small square of blue paper:

24th March, 1913. Drowned in Atlantic. — H. Scott, J. Caldwell, both of Dundee, Scotland.

The short note was sent to the postmaster, who forwarded it to Dundee police.

[Dundee Courier, 17 August 1914]
