Virginia Purdy (Brig), 6 Dec 1847
- Full Text
NEW VESSEL. -- We omitted yesterday to notice the arrival of a new and pretty craft, called the VIRGINIA PURDY. She was built by the Messrs. Jones, of Cleveland, for Mr. S. Purdy of this city, and has capacity for about 14,000 bushels of wheat.
Her dimensions are as follows: length of keel 115 feet -- breadth of beam 25 feet 6 inches -- depth of hold 10 feet 10 inches, and is rated at 307 tons burthen.
We understand she will be converted into a brig for the spring trade, and will be under the command of Captain Travers. Those capable of judging of these matters give her credit of being a fast sailer. -- Buffalo Com.
