Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
THE BISMARK. - This vessel, which was aground on Turtle Island Flats, was being assisted by the tug VELOCIPEDE, but, not being sufficiently powerful, the requested the assistance of the U.S. Steamer FESSENDEN, which was cheerfully granted. After parting a small hawser belonging to the schooner, the nine-inch line of the FESSENDEN was passed out and secured, but it was not until several heavy pulls had been given that she started, and was towed clear of danger, consuming over two hours' time.
