Destruction of the Steamship by Fire with Great Loss of Life

 

Statements Plymouth - 17th January 1852

 

An effort was made

“from each individual additional intelligence regarding this awful accident, and particular enquiry was instituted relative to the position and condition of the remaining boats.”

“Some difficulty has been experienced herein from the fact of the crew being strangers to the ship,

and also from the deficiency of knowledge about the boats by the engineers and

others whose duty was confined to the machinery”.
