The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Two Fannies (Schooner), leak, 15 Apr 1879

Full Text

The schooner TWO FANNIES, loaded with 32,000 bushels of corn at Chicago, was found to have four-and-a-half feet of water in her hold Tuesday afternoon. It is believed that about 4,000 or 5,000 bushels of corn is wet, and when taken out will be sold for what it will bring in its damaged state, probably from 10 to 15 cents per bushel. The total loss on the cargo will be about $1,200, and expenses incurred by the accident and placed under the head of general average, will fetch it up to about $2,500.
