Sailed from Narvik for Philadelphia 25 March.  On 8 April encountered and soon was encircled by ice.  A heavy fog impeded her evasive action.  She broke free on 9 April and was soon away from the mass of ice, though still in the presence of many detached bergs.  On April 11 the haze reappeared and she passed close to three large bergs parallel to her course.  On 14 April Annie encountered a storm of heavy wind, thick sleet and constant rain.  Running short of fuel, she was forced to put into Halifax for coal, and arrived in Philadelphia 23 April, eight days behind schedule.
