Wick, 7th Mar., information has been received here from Norway that the chest found on 1st Jan., at Ackergill, belonged to the second mate of the ALICE (barq.), of Moss, of which vessel no report has been received since 9th Dec., 1876, when she sailed from Sunderland for Christiania, coal laden. [Record received incomplete].

NMRS, MS/829/70 (no. 4550).

The map sheet and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are arbitrary. The vessel presumably foundered out at sea, possibly beyond Scottish waters.
The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998).
