The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
J. B. Shaw (Schooner), 16 Aug 1854

Full Text

The excellence of Milan built vessels, is we think generally acknowledged, among vessel owners and officers. The schooner J. E. SHAW, lately from the stocks of the above place, with a cargo of 14,865 bu. corn from this city for Oswego, went through the canal at the same time with the brig YOUNG AMERICA, but beat her 12 miles in going to her destination. The latter vessel has just been sold for $17,000

The Sandusky Register is in error. It confounds the schooner YOUNG AMERICA with the brig of the same name. The brig YOUNG AMERICA, which was sold for $17,000, was employed by her former owner, in the lumber trade, and has never been on the lower lake. Please correct.
