The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
General Huntington (Schooner), aground, 1823

Full Text

In a violent gale on Sunday last (9/7), the schr. HANNAH, Capt. Fox, lying at anchor off the Lighthouse, parted her cable, and in attempting to run into the basin for the protection from the wind, grounded on the bar, where she still lies. Capt. Budd of the Navy, and some of our citizens, have kindly tendered their assistance, and it is hoped they will soon get her afloat. A similar instance of generosity was shown by the same gentlemen in relieving the schr. GEN. HUNTINGTON from the same situation a short time since. This argues strongly the necessity of deepening the channel at the entrance of our harbor.
