      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

      The prop. TRUESDELL, on a recent trip, found the small schr. FREE TRADER in distress on Green Bay, having sprung a serious leak. The vessel was laden with fish in packages, which were transferred to the propeller, and the disabled craft towed upon the lower end of the middle ground in Sturgeon Bay. Several days hereafter she floated off and when last seen was drifting into Green Bay. She has in all probability foundered. - Chicago Times.
