Clam Cove, about five miles north of Cape Race, is the burial place of the passangers drowned at the wreck of the steamship Anglo Saxon. The population along this part of the shore numbers only 157. Cape Race is distant from St. John's about 64 miles by road and about 60 miles by water. Mail weekly. Population
