The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Daniel Webster (Steamboat), collision, 24 Oct 1836

Full Text

The Steamboats DANIEL WEBSTER, and COLUMBUS ran foul of each other night before last, on the lake. A short distance from Fairport. The WEBSTER lost her bowsprit, and part of the ladies' cabin on board the COLUMBUS was carried away. Whether any lives were lost on board the COLUMBUS, we have not heard. There was however much confusion and screaming on board the boat, and it is feared not without just cause. The COLUMBUS was on her way up, and the DANIEL WEBSTER coming down. No-body was injured aboard the latter boat. - Buffalo Journal.
