The fine, and fast sailing schr. Recovery, upwards of 100 tons burthen, well built, and of excellent materials, now on lake Superior, and belonging to the Hudson's Bay Company, will be put up at public sale at the Saut Ste. Mary's, on or about the 20th or 25th of June, proximo.

This vessel was launched in 1823, in which season a survey of the Lake was made in her by captain Bayfield, of the Royal Navy. She has been laid up since the summer of 1825, and is in good order, drawing but little water, and being a fast sailer, she is well adapted for the trade of the lower lakes.--Persons desirous of having a craft of this description, will never have a better opportunity to suit themselves.

The terms of payment will be made easy for cash, or approved bills, at 6, 12, or 18 months, as may be agreed on, by giving good security.

She will be run down the falls of St. Mary's about the latter end of May.


Hudson's Bay Company's Establishment [sic], Saut St. Mary's 13th March. 1828
