Sturgeon Bay Advocate (Sturgeon Bay, WI), 17 Nov 1894

Full Text

Our Inland Marine. The Advocate is in receipt of a lengthy communication from Capt. A. G. Brown of Milwaukee who was master as well as owner of the scow L. May Gutherie, which stranded on Fisherman's shoal on the morning of Sept. 27, in which he expresses his gratitude to the truly brave men that risked their lives in rescuing the captain and his crew, an account of which appeared in this paper at the time. He wishes to thank J. W. Cornell, owner of the Truscott, Capt. Peter Jordan, James L. Aznoe, Paul Z. Cornell all of whom were on the tug, and And. Irr, Matt. Foss, Henry Foss, Thos. Johnson were the men that manned the fish-boat and made the rescue. Among other things he says: “In addition to this I would like to say that Messrs. Cornell and Jordan as soon as the weather permitted took the Truscott and a lighter and assisted us in saving the outfit of the vessel without any charges. This is certainly a generosity without parallel in such cases.” Capt. Brown thinks it is high time that the government was building a life-saving station somewhere on the east side of Washington Island.
