Panama Star
Panama City, Panama
August 25, 1849

NOTE: The following names appear on a "card" of appreciation published in the Panama Star. This is a resolution usually commending the captain of the ship. For some unknown reason I have neither the name of the ship nor its captain. However, a second card signed by many of the below listed passengers was published two days later and gives the name of the ship as the Empire City. For that information, the Panama Star is available on microfilm by Inter Library Loan from the California State Library.
