Item description: These are notices that appeared on 2 June 1864 in The Daily Journal of Wilmington, North Carolina. The first notice deals with the passenger lists of ships running the Union blockade, and the second with the revocation of passes for citizens to fish along the coasts of North Carolina and Virginia.
May 25th, 1864
MASTERS of Ships engaged in running the blockade, are requested to take care that their lists of passengers are complete before forwarding them to Headquarters for signature. Many instances occur in which parties with proper passports lose passage, on account of their names not appearing on the ships lists when inspected–This may be due in many cases to neglect or ignorance on the part of the passengers themselves, but as in all cases, before a passport is issued, parties are required to specify the ships in which they propose to sail, it is easy to provide against these omissions.
