On Thursday night, 3rd April, the German steamship “Daniel Steinman,” with 16 immigrants for the Eastern Townships was wrecked on Sambro, off this harbour, and the 16 with many others for the States were drowned, and the bodies have not been recovered as yet. In July the steamship “Amsterdam” was wrecked on Sable Island with a large number of German immigrants on board.

At the request of the German Consul I took charge of the party consisting of 217 souls, who were landed by the Government steamship “Newfield” on the deep water wharf here. They were directly forwarded to their destinations in the States all expenses being paid by the owners. (pp.37-38)
