Description
Full Text

Harbor Beach, Sept. 8 - The schrs. JOHN WESLEY and VIENNA went ashore last night about a mile south of the breakwater in the dense smoke and heavy north gale. The crews were taken off by the lifesavers in their surf boat. Both ships were bound up light. The WESLEY struck on a rocky bottom and may be a total loss. The VIENNA can be taken off easily without much damage.
