Full Text

In August, 1798, the sloop ANNETTE, owned by John Askin was chartered by the Collector of Detroit to convey supplies belonging to the government of the United States to the newly established port at Presque' Isle, now Erie, Pa. This small ship was driven by a heavy gale into Long Point Bay, where she sank in shallow water. Much of her cargo was salvaged by some of the neighbouring inhabitants, who carried it away, Hon. Robert Hamilton, acting as Askin's agent, sent Robert Nichols, then one of his clerks, to reclaim it.
