Robert Buehler <> asked about the ship named 'Clemens'
which arrived in NYC on 9/19/1854 from Bremen.

Here is the arrival report, New York Times, Sept. 19, 1854
Arrived New York Sept. 18
Bark Clemens, (Brem.,) [captain] Hanlamann, Bremen 39 ds., with mdse. and
181 passengers to [agents] Hennings, Muller & Gosling.

Unfortunately I havn't been able to find any further information about
the bark Clemens; indeed it is possible this was her only voyage to the
United States. Hanlamann may be wrong but that is how the NYT spelled it.

The same column had an arrival of a vessel from Sisal, Yucatan, Mexico:
Bark J. W. Blodget, [captain] Wait, Sisal, 33ds., with hemp and deer skins
to [agent] E. Theboud & Son. Left no Am. vessels.
(See Disasters)
The disaster section had a long report. The J. W. Blodget had got caught in
a hurricane, dismasted and seriously damaged. However she was still floating.
She found five other wrecked vessels, rescuing the crew from one.
