Kindly Make Inquiries

Found October 1907, Carmarthen Bay, South Wales.

In a bottle, on a piece of dirty paper:

Steamship Brunswick, 1898, off Cape Horn, March 13th. If found kindly make inquiries.
All hands lost. God Bless Us.
Captain Jones.

Cape Horn, off Chile, is the southernmost point of South America. It is more than 8,000 miles from South Wales, where this message was found – almost ten years after it was dated.
