The ‘Ville D’Alger’ was run aground off Joliette, where she lay half full of water.The mail was all recovered a few days later, but all was wetted by sea water. The steamer was subsequently refloated on the 6th April. There are four different types of handstamp known used, three have the wording ‘NAUFRAGE DE LA VILLE D’ALGER’ in two lines, the fourth omits the ‘LA’ from the wording.
