Full Text

FREE TRADER Schooner, cargo salt, sprang a leak in a gale on L.E., and damaged cargo. Property loss $150
      Buffalo Morning Express
      Jan. 11, 1856 (Casualty List)


The schooner FREE TRADER, Capt. T. Green, came in Saturday evening, with 273 barrels salt for Butts, having been out ten days from Buffalo. Her cargo is much damaged and her captain reports a perilous trip. During the gales within the ten days his vessel had at times been in the greatest danger, and he and his crew gave up all hopes of ever reaching land. How much the vessel is damaged is not yet ascertained. All things considered Capt. Green has made one of the most perilous voyages on record. -- Cleveland herald, 15th.
