Guysborough Times, 4 May 1911

Yankee Cove:

On Wednesday our harbor was once more set free of ice and a crowd of hardy fishermen were working hard while the wind blew a gale from the north which leaves the clean blue waters for us once more.

Last Friday's storm was one of the most severe storms that was ever experienced by the oldest inhabitants of Yankee Harbor. The wind blew from the north-east and a raging snow storm followed. The fishing fleet that was in the harbor had both anchors down and expected every moment to go ashore.

Schooner Togo and Schooner Mary A arrived from Canso on Tuesday and Schooner Sea Lily sailed for Black Duck Cove on Thursday.

Mr John Dawson passed through Yankee Harbor en route for Raspberry where he is employed with D M McMullan.

Miss Lydia Feltmate and Harold Stormy [Sturmy -pf] arrived home from Halifax.

The schooner Jenny, Captain Patrick Feltmate, sailed on Sunday for Dover.

We are all very glad to get the good old Guysboro Times, where we can all see dear old Capt. J S Wells' picture who is sure to gain the day.
