Alice (Schooner), U400, 12 Sep 1874
- Full Text
The day selected for the departure of the ALICE from here to Liverpool has been unexpectedly delayed on account of extra outfit that had to be prepared and which it is usual for ships on such voyages to take with them. Her topmasts, which were proportionately large, were sent down and tapered smaller and are in far better shape than before. A new jibboom has also been fitted, besides a few extra sails. Her cargo below decks, as is generally known, consists of bone dust, and for a depth of 9 ft. from the floor up is in bulk; above that is confined to sacks. On deck the ALICE takes a quantity of choice oak and ash lumber on account of J.P. Clark the owner. Her repairs were all completed last evening and no further detention is expected beyond the necessary time required for lightering and canaling through to Montreal. She sails today on or before meridian. Capt. Burke her vetran commander is hopeful of having a quick passage over.
