      The schooner DEAN RICHMOND was launched Wednesday at the ship-yard of Quayle & Martin. We have heretofore adverted to her peculiar qualities of architecture and strength. She is undoubtedly the strongest vessel ever built here. Her tonnage is 379 91-95 tons. She is owned by Charles T. Richmond of Chicago, and will be sailed by Capt. Wm. Somerville. - Cleveland Herald

From the Liverpool Daily Post, Sept. 24 (on the arrival of the Dean Richmond from Chicago to Liverpool)
.... And now for a few words respecting the vessel, (which, with the cargo, came consigned to Messrs. Bigland, Athya & Co., of this port) The DEAN RICHMOND is a fore and aft schooner of 380 tons register; her length is 145 feet over all; beam 26 feet; depth of hold 12 feet. She drew 9-1/2 feet, with 400 tons of wheat in her, and has beaten many vessels from Quebec by two or three weeks. The DEAN RICHMOND is built entirely of oak; except the decks, and is fitted with a new centre-board, which in deep water gives her a draught of 18 feet. She has immense spars for her size, and altogether has a very rakish appearance. At present she is the largest vessel which can come through the canals; but by a moderate outlay upon them we are given to understand ships of 800 to 1,000 tons could easily be admitted. ( Part)
