      Tuesday, September 26, 1882


The captain of the steamer SAULT STE. MARIE reports that the Schooner DOT, in tow of the steambarge M.M. DRAKE, ore laden, from Marquette, sprung a leak off Grand Marais, Lake Superior, and was abandoned by the crew, who went aboard the DRAKE. Her bulwarks and some of her spars were gone. She went down shortly after in deep water. The DOT was built at St. Catharines, Canada, in 1865, measured 300 tons, and was owned by A.C. Smith of Detroit and her master Captain Jones. She rates B 1 and was valued at $7,000. - Cheboygan Report.

NOTE:-- some records show the MARY MERRITT as being renamed SEREPTA in 1884, but this is a mix up on a MARY EVERETT, which was originally the SEREPTA.
