SS Naronic - a fifth message in the bottle

Postby Tyego Franklim » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:25 pm


My name is Tyego Franklim, I'm Brazilian and a historian.

Today a fellow researcher posted on a social network a local newspaper report that he would have found in one of his surveys, reporting on the appearance of a bottle with a message found here in my city (Natal, Rio Grande do Norte - Brazil). The message was about the wreck of the SS Naronic, saying:

"Naronic quickly sinks into the North Atlantic. It had a collision with a floating mountain of ice."

I searched the wreck quickly and found some pages, including these. But in all there is mention of only 4 messages found. In this way, the letter found in Natal would be a fifth - and lost - report on the wreck, though short.

The most curious - and that leads me to write this topic - is the distance where this letter was found, in relation to the others.
(5°47'42.0"S 35°12'34.0"W)
