As mentioned in Chartres Brew’s 1858 account of the wreck of the ship Austria, Lotus was on its way to Halifax when it met up with the ship Maurice who had rescued the surviving crew and passengers of Austria. Brew and eleven other passengers, who wanted to proceed quickly to North America, were given passage by Captain Trefry of the Lotus.
