Citizen (Schooner), U4273, aground, 18 Oct 1838
- Full Text
Gale Damage - The lower end of the Lake was swept by a severe gale on Friday, doing considerable damage. The Schooner CITIZEN, with a full cargo of wheat was beached a short distance below the Buffalo Light-house, where she now lies nearly high and dry. During the gale every sea broke over her, and her cargo suffered much injury.
The brig MANHATTAN, the noblest craft on western waters, with a valuable cargo of Merchandise for Chicago, we regret to learn was driven hard ashore at Point Abino. We understand the craft is bilged, and cannot be got off without much difficulty. Cargo insured. The Buffalo Commercial states that a schooner was beached near Fairport.
