Description
Full Text

The scow SARAH CLOW, which attempted to reach Pere Marquette harbor during the late gale, but failed and was driven upon the beach about 80 rods south of the pier, is rapidly going to pieces. The scow was built in 1862, at Chambers' Island, by D.Clow, who was her owner. She was a vessel of 286 burden, classed B 2, and her approximate gold value was $3,500. The Marine Register says: "She is fastened entirely with tree nails."
