4-16 - Note in a bottle -
Dave Doucette

1northernV.jpg (169956 bytes)
In 1976 I was working cleaning up an oil spill from a ship in the St Lawrence near Cornwall Ont. I found a bottle with a note and dollar in it that I still have. The note reads "finder have a beer on me Orv. Elliott   SS Northern Venture" I would like to know when and where the bottle was tossed in the Great Lakes. If you can provide details please
post to the search page
