The Evening Telegram, St. John's, NF, May 26, 1887(part of the Notes)

Notes From Trinity Bay

Wreckage From The "Trixie H."

 

 

Early yesterday morning some of out boats, whilst on the passage across to the other side of the Bay, picked up a quantity of wreckage - a spar thirty-five feet long, a punt, a barrel of flour, a cask of kerosene oil, an empty biscuit box, an empty puncheon, a clothes trunk, &c. To-day Charles Randall, Esq., Preventive Officer and Constable Hatcher visited this place and inspected the above-named articles. Of course you are in possession of all the facts relative to the wreck, as it occurred on Saturday night by a collision with the S.S. Plover. Those on board the ill-fated schooner who were not drowned were brought to St. John's by said steamer. The lost vessel proves to be the Trixie H., of Heart's Content, Robert Percey, master. I understand five souls went down with the schooner - three men and two women - and fourteen were saved. This sad affair has cast a deep gloom over Hearts Content.
