and 338 passengers to [agents] Oelrichs & Co. Had 8 deaths on the

Arrived New York November 22, 1869
Bark Anton, (N.G.), [captain] Fricke, Bremen, 45 days with mdse and
187 passengers to Oelrich & Co. Had two births on the passage. From

during which lost and split sails etc.

N.G. means the ship was registered in North Germany, the country
including Bremen at that time.
I don't have any more information about the vessel. Both voyages are
included in Germans to America.
