Steamer G.W. REYNOLDS, machinery disabled near entrance of Saginaw River. Marine Disasters of the Western
Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
BROKE DOWN. - The steamer G.W. REYNOLDS, running on the Pine River route,
broke her connection rod, condenser and walking beam in Saginaw Bay, on Monday.
She was towed back to Bay City, and thence to East Saginaw, for repairs. The accident
will probably lay her up for a month, and her place on the route will be taken by the
steamer M.W. WRIGHT, which has been thoroughly overhauled, receiving new boilers,
machinery, &c. It is estimated that the cost of repairing the damage done to the
REYNOLDS will amount to at least twelve hundred dollars.
