The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), March 8, 1890

Full Text

p.1 The Vessel Is Coming Up - The steamer Armstrong, sunk in the St. Lawrence River at Brockville, has been raised ten feet from the bottom. The connecting timbers on the wrecking vessels are bent considerably under the heavy strain. The boat has also been towed inward for a considerable distance. Men are now cutting a channel to the wharf. Kingstonians say that Capt. Mooney will not rest until the boat is safe in port. He is a hustler when things are moving fairly well.
