Richmond Packet (Schooner), 18 Jul 1820
- Full Text
LAUNCH. -- York, July 20
On Saturday evening, a schooner of about 60 tons, built for Mr. Oates and others, was launched in this port. She went off in fine style until she reached the water, where for some defect in her ways, her progress was checked, and from the lateness of the hour, she could not be freed from the impedimen before the next morning, when she glided into the bay in safety. Those who are judges, say that she is a very fine vessel of the class.
It is now several years since any launch has been done here, it therefore, although so small a vessel, attracted a good deal of curiosity. --- U. C. Gazette
