Helen (Schooner), squall damage, 8 Sep 1842


Description
Full Text

A severe northeast squall swept across the lake on Thursday night (Sept. 8th) doing considerable damage. The schooner HELEN, Capt. Chase, encountered it, and for a while was almost unmanageable. Her mainsailis split, and her rigging parted in many places. She however weathered it, and got in here in safety. At the west end of the lake the storm must have been destructive.
