Captain Jennifer Dowker, company owner Nautical North FamilyShe professionally organises cruises and dives in the Cheboygan River. She is also a diver herself and enjoys devoting herself to her hobby. During one of her dives she found on the bottom of the river a bottle with a letter from 1926. On the sheet of paper, in addition to a clear date “November 1926” It bore the author’s name, George Morrow, his place of residence and a request to contact him.
Thanks to the power of the internet and social media, Jennifer Dowker managed to contact Michele Primeau, the daughter of the letter’s author. Sadly, George, who “sent” the message in the little green bottle into the future, died in 1995. His 74-year-old daughter recognised her dad’s handwriting and was very moved and happy by the fact that the letter arrived exactly on Father’s Day.
I couldn’t believe it all. It was so unusual because it was Father’s Day this weekend and it brought back so many memories of him. I knew straight away that the letter was written by my dad! He was very sentimental and often did things like this – Michele Primeau, daughter of the letter’s author, said
Letters in a bottle and other objects from times long (or recently) gone by are a constant feature of many dives. An attentive diver can easily pick out items that are not an integral part of the underwater landscape. Sometimes they are just rubbish, and sometimes they are real treasures.
