The Belfast Evening Telegraph, 9 March 1894
   Advices just to hand state that the Norwegian barque Elsa Anderson has arrived at Galveston, U.S.A. with the hull of an English-built brig in tow. The ship seemed to have burned at sea a half century ago, and the hull appeared off the Faroe Islands, after a submarine disturbance. It was covered with sea shells, but the hull and under decks contained little water. In the captain's berth was found a leathern bag containing 1,000 guineas, of the year 1809, and jewellery. Three male skeletons were also found, one of a man nearly seven feet in height.
