Copy of a Northern Times article written by James Henderson about the history of the Dornoch and Embo Lifeboat. The article is headed 'In all, 13 men perished that fatal morning leaving eight widows and 13 fatherless children', and includes an extract from the Northern Ensign of 2 November 1865 recalling the two fatal incidents at sea on 28 October 1865 which ultimately led to the establishment of the Dornoch and Embo Lifeboat.
