Samuel Marshall (Propeller), U116232, 17 Dec 1902

Full Text

The steamer MARSHALL got away at five o'clock last evening with 500 tons of coal for Brockville. The captain of the MARSHALL informed the D.L.& W. agents yesterday that he would leave at five o'clock yesterday afternoon, being afraid that if the wind shifted and come out of the northwest, that he would be forced to lay up for the winter. When five o'clock came he cast off the lines and started, although he had but half a load. The MARSHALL has been sold and is to be delivered at Brockville. Hence the captains desire to land her there.
