L. H. Cotton (Bark), U14712, aground, 2 Sep 1865

Full Text

The barque L.H. COTTON, which has brought several cargoes of iron ore to this port, struck on Colchester Reef Saturday, where she was detained till released by the tug KATE WILLIAMS. From 60 to 80 tons of pig iron were jettisoned before she could be gotten off, and then she was leaking so badly that the tug towed her to Cleveland as fast as possible. Her injuries are serious, and the iron thrown overboard will be a total loss.
