      FOR SALE
The fine and fast sailing schooner R E C O V E R Y, upwards of one hundred tons burthen, well built, and of excellent materials, now on Lake Superior, and belonging to the Hudsons Bay Company; will be put up at public sale, at Sault St. Marys on or about the 20th or 25th of June next.
This vessel was launched in 1823, in which season a survey of the Lake was made in her by Captain Bayfield of the Royal Navy. She has been laid up since the summer of 1825, and is in good order, drawing but little water and being a fast sailer, she is well adapted for the trade of the Lower lakes. persons desirous of having a craft of this description will never have a better opportunity to suit themselves.
The terms of payment will be made easy, for cash or approved bills, at 6, 12 or 18 months, as may be agreed on by giving good security.
She will be run down the falls of St. Mary's about the latter end of May
