The Sentca left Halifax on May 1, proceeding to the Grand Banks, and relieved the Miami of ice-patrol duty on May 3 at 6 p. m. in lat. 43 41' N., long. 53 37' W. May 4 a thick fog set in and Seneca anchored on Grand Bank with kedge anchor. Received a report from S. S.

We spoke her and found her to be the British bark Beeswing, bound for St. John, New Brunswick, and that she had been in that vicinity for several days. It is probable that she was mistaken for an iceberg by the Noordam. I then set the course of the Seneca to make East, true, in lat. 42 30' N., and we held this parallel during the 10th and 11th, drifting with steam at throttle during the night.
