The blizzard that swept over the New England coast on November 27 and 28 proves to have been the most disastrous of any in the history of the country. Many hundreds of vessels were wrecked and scores of houses and cottages along the seashore were destroyed. Many lives were lost. The most distressing casualty was the sinking of the steamer Portland, which left the Boston dock the evening of the storm. As nearly as has been ascertained, there were 186 passengers on board, and it is believed all were lost. Thus far there is no evidence that any survived.
