BREED, C.G. Schooner, lost sails and shifted cargo of grain on Lake Michigan.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall

The brig C.G. BREED which left Milwaukee for Buffalo on Thursday morning last with a cargo of wheat, was struck by the gale when pretty well down the lake, and with the greatest difficulty succeeded in reaching the west shore. Her squaresail and jib were carried away, foresail split, the cargo shifted, and everything moveable on deck washed overboard. Capt. Jamison states that he saved the hawser and other loose ropes by stowing them away in the cabin. The BREED returned to that port Saturday afternoon for repairs.
