Pryun (Steam yacht), 12 Jul 1900

Full Text

Frank P. Chesbrough's new steam yacht was lying at F P. Young's coal dock this morning, getting ready for a sail on the bay. She was built at Detroit and came out about two weeks ago. She is called PRYUN, which is said to be Mr. Chesbrough's middle name. She is a beautiful craft, sparkling new and furnished like a palatial home. She is 105 feet long and 16 feet wide. She burns hard coal and is therefor kept free from dust. It is the intention of Mr. Chesbrough to take her to Emerson, on Whitefish Bay, Lake Superior, where his lumbering interests are centered, for this season, and will cruise about that point during the warm weather.
