Chandler J. Wells (Schooner), U4274, Gale effects, 1 Jul 1883
- Full Text
The Propeller J.B. LYON arrived here Sunday morning having in tow the schooners J.M. HUTCHISON, MASTEN and C.J. WELLS. The HUTCHISON and MASTEN had lost a considerable amount of canvas and the WELLS some of her bulwarks and was leaking badly. They broke adrift from the LYON about 30 miles off Milwaukee in a heavy gale, and the WELLS was leaking so badly that Captain Lamgan, who had his wife on board with him, was compelled to remove them to the HUTCHISON, fearing that the WELLS would go down. Chicago Report.

She received almost an entire new port-side, thhree streaks of plank, stanchions, rail, etc. She got also a new jibboom and wire rigging forward, and is now in good condition throughout.
