Description
Full Text

Quite a large crowd of people gathered at Dunford & Leighton's yard this afternoon, to view the launch of the fine 3 masted schooner just completed by them for the Lake Superior Transportation Co. of Cleveland. She is named the EDWARD KELLEY, after one of her owners and is intended for the ore trade. The launch was superintended by Messrs. Dunford and Leighton in person and at 15 past 11 o'clock the vessel glided quietly into the stream amid the cheers of those on board and ashore. She was towed by the tug MARTIN to Moffat's dock. The EDWARD KELLEY is pronounced by all observers a beautiful craft.
