Maurice (Brig), gale damage, sails &c., 1 Nov 1847
- Full Text
GALE. - Last Saturday afternoon, a fleet of vessels, numbering about fifty, left our port for the west wit a fair breeze - wind north-eats. At 9 o'clock in the evening it commenced raining, and about 1:30 o'clock yesterday morning, the wind shifted to the westward, and blew a gale until morning.
Many of the vessels had their canvas badly stripped and torn, by the force of the wind. The brig MAURICE came in with her sails badly stripped, and her main-boom broken, where it is joined on the main-mast.
