I don't know what the "something" is... just scribbles...

The name of the passenger definitely shows "Friedr." and not Fritz… !

From what I can see on the first page…

North German Lloyd (Ship Line or Company)

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-16952-66792-66?cc...

Further info about the Line

http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/lines/nglloyd.shtml

Name of Ship: S.S. Rhein

"Bremen via Southampton"

From what I know, the Bremen passenger lists were destroyed… so I cannot cross reference… for further info….

http://www.progenealogists.com/germany/articles/gdepart.htm

Passenger list was completed on March 22, 1875

According to 2 newspaper archives… the Rhein arrived March 21, or March 22 1875.

According to 1 newspaper (an American French newspaper), it left Southampton on the 9th of March .. if I am not mistaken, it also picked up big cases or cargo originally from Paris... March 8th... not sure.. French homework for ya!!

See below for the French clipping...

Hope this helps…

Here's the link from the Ancestry site...
