Full Text

Smith & Davis have sold to Capt. Peter J. Kenney, of Buffalo, the schr. GROTON, as she is at Marquette, for $8,000. She is loaded with about 600 tons of railroad iron from Buffalo to Duluth. The freight is $2.50 per ton, about $1,500, which goes to the purchaser. The GROTON was carefully overhauled last summer, under the direction of Capt. George McLeod and put in good condition throughout. She also received a new outfit. She has a straight A2 rating and Capt. Kenney has secured an excellent bargain. He will command her himself.
