100 Horses

Found 27 August 1889, East of Lossiemouth, Moray.

In a small tin box, a slip of paper:

Steamship Lady Anne, foundered at sea, N.N.E. 20 men, 100 horses, 41 passengers. To my mother at 56 Back Street, Findhorn, Mrs Smith.

The message was handed to a Mr Brander, an agent for Lloyd’s.

[Aberdeen Evening Express, 28 August 1889]
