News account from Massachusetts: "Although the violent northeast snowstorm which began here [Boston] yesterday morning [January 14] cleared in the vicinity of this city this afternoon [January 15], it was still raging with unabated fury tonight over Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, where the blizzard was declared to be the worst since the establishment of the Weather Bureau station in 1886. Nantucket has been without mails since Thursday [January 13], no steamer having been able to cross from the mainland. Vineyard Haven, which was also isolated yesterday, was reached today by a tug with mail and passengers."
