I Now Have Five Minutes

Found May 1895, Yarmouth.

In a bottle, written in pencil on a rough piece of paper:

April 20.
I have now five minutes to let you know we have taken to the boat, trusting we shall be picked up. Good-bye.
Frank Click, Petrel, Peterhead.

It was reported that the Petrel was a fishing boat.
