Captain Gunderson, the bar pilot, who brought the Italian ship Dora in yesterday, tells an interesting story about the condition that she was in. He boarded her about 9 o’clock yesterday and the Captain immediately invited him into the cabin for breakfast. It consisted of coffee without sugar and some hard tack.
