Notes
Content: Printed on image: "G. O'Neil E[mig]ration [Ag]ent" "Direct from Cork ; For Quebec ; Hibernia" Printed on border: " 'Upon reference to notes and papers of my own, and to information afforded me by the emigration agents here, I am disposed to think that about the middle of May the great emigrational torrent ceases to flow from these shores. Looking backward for the last month, I find that, during the week ending April 11 the greatest rush for the season took place. The numbers who left Cork that week could not have fallen far short of 1500 souls…" Written on border: "May 10, 1851"
