Monticello (Schooner), U90203, aground, 1 Apr 1874

Full Text

The statement which has gone the rounds of the papers that the bark MONTMORENCI got ashore at Long Pt. is incorrect, so far as the name of the vessel is concerned. The vessel was the MONTICELLO, which grounded, but got off without damage and without assistance.
