Full Text

Before navigation had opened in 1779 Captain Schank made a detailed report on the condition of the ships available for navigating upon the Upper Lakes.
      " The HOPE schooner is reported to me to require considerable repairs before she can navigate - probably not before the latter end of June"
      " The ANGELICA sloop used to be employed to navagate between Detroit and mackinac. The ANGELICA or another vessel must be employed in carrying on the same service."
"The FAITH schooner will probably be employed in carrying up from Little Niagara [Fort Schlosser] to Fort Erie."
      A list of merchant's vessels on Lake Erie and Huron and Superior was appended.
