An old citizen whose mind is stored with reminiscences connected with Buffalo, and who is good authority on all matters pertaining to its early history, sends us the following:
      Eds. Commercial: - November 18, 1842, (26 years ago this evening, or tonight), the schr. JEFFERSON went ashore near the then Wells Pratt (now the Tifft) farm, above the toll bridge on the Buffalo and Dunkirk turnpike road, in a freezing snow storm, and the mother and her babe were frozen to death while coming ashore in the awful storm. Capt. L.B. Goldsmith, I believe, sailed the JEFFERSON that year, or Capt. Goldsmith's brother, who is now on a Cleveland and Detroit, or Detroit and Milwaukee steamboat.
      Yours Respectfully, H.S.S.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      November 18, 1868 3-3
