William Penn (Steamboat), broke machinery, 16 Aug 1827


Description
Full Text

The stm. WM. PENN met with a disaster on Friday last, a short distance from Cleveland, on her passage from Detroit to this place, which will not, however, interrupt her regular trips. Her steam condenser, one of the fly wheels, and the injection pipe, gave way in rapid succession. Fortunately the wind was strong in her favor, which enabled her to reach Cleveland in safety.
