1861-05-21 Ice from Lake Ladoga

London Times, 21 May 1861, p. 9: RUSSIA. St. Petersburg, May 20, Evening.

            Although the Neva has been already open for navigation, it was to-day suddenly and thickly covered with ice coming from Lake Ladoga.

            Many vessels have been damaged, and many barges, laden with grain, sunk.

            The losses are very considerable.
