Robert Emmett (Schooner), U21142, 2 Sep 1871
- Full Text
TO BE DISMANTLED. - The schooner ROBERT EMMETT is being dismantled at this port. She will be converted into a barge and put in the lumber trade between Buffalo and Sawinaw. This is only another indication of the tendency of the times. This vessel was formerly a first class grain craft, trading between Buffalo and Chicago. Now she yields to the inevitable demand for steam navigation, and takes her place behind a powerful steam tug.
