Wellington (Brig), aground, 22 Jun 1827
- Full Text
A very severe gale commenced on the lake on Friday morning last, which continued for 12 hours. We do not know that serious injury was done. The Steam-boat SUPERIOR got safe into Erie, and also several schooners. The Steam-boat ENTERPRISE in attempting to ride out the gale at anchor off Conneaut, parted her cable and went into Erie. It is reported, but we know not upon what foundation, that the British Brig WELLINGTON, a large and elegant vessel owned by McIntosh of Sandwich, opposite Detroit, was lost on the lower end of Lake Erie, with all her crew.
