Falmouth (Schooner), U24984, 20 Sep 1883
- Full Text
Another wreck, that of the FALMOTH, was next visited. This vessel as long ago as the winter of 1880 ran onto the outer end of the breakwater during a blinding snow storm. She sank immediately, and in such a position that she was in no one's way, but gradually she has become broken up, and within the past few weeks her bottom and center board have drifted down into river channel, where they have been marked by a large spile. The obstruction is in the domain over which the United States excercises jurisdiction, and it is understood that the U.S. Engineer in charge of this district has already taken steps for its removal.
