Brig FLORA, loaded with wheat at Michigan City, vessel beached August 30, 1850 near Chicago, Lake Michigan.
      Casualty List for 1850
      Erik Hyle's private papers

      . . . . .

      The brig FLORA is ashore about one mile south of Chicago. She was loaded with 10,600 bushels of wheat from Michigan City, consigned to Mr. L.H. Pratt of this city, who is also owner of the vessel. The cargo will be a total loss and the vessel much injured. Both are fully insured. The Chicago Tribune says the schooners GEORGE C. DREW and GEORGE WATSON, lumber vessels, are both, doubtless ashore a few miles south of that city.
