The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Crowell (Tug), 8 Aug 1876

Full Text

As the tug CROWELL was lying alongside the barge ELIZA in the lake yesterday afternoon, and preparing to make her line fast, having been engaged to tow her in, a certain Tonawanda tug steamed up within hailing distance and made overtures to the barge captain for a much cheaper price, knowing the CROWELL to have been taken. He did not press the matter, however, and wisely too, as we are certain he would never have made anything out of the tow had the barge captain changed his mind. The CROWELL has a WOLFE in her "fold" who has never allowed any interference of any kind, and judging from his determined look yesterday, the stranger would have been devoured, sure, if she had gone any further.
