Propeller MISSOURI, ashore on Whale's Back, Green Bay; pulled off, damage slight.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

      PROP. MISSOURI ASHORE. - A despatch has been received at Milwaukee announcing that the propeller MISSOURI had run ashore on Whale's Back, Green Bay, and asking for steam pumps and a lighter. Whale's Back is an exposed and dangerous reef, situated about 6 miles WNW of Death's Door, and it is therefore highly important that assistance be rendered at once in order to save the propeller from total wreck.
