French Smack – The Mixen, Weymouth Harbour. DCC: 12/02/1857. “On Monday week the French fishing smack LE FOI, of Dieppe, went ashore on the “Mixen”, at the entrance of the Harbour. The crew appear to have mistaken the channel which leads into the port. As the accident happened at nearly high water, all attempts to get off the vessel have as yet been unsuccessful. The matter was mentioned at the Council meeting of Wednesday last, and it was the general opinion that some steps should be taken to stop up the passage which has been the occasion of the misfortune. Ref. Sh. Merc: 10/02/1857.
