Glasgow (Propeller), U85199, aground, 1 Aug 1884

Full Text

On her way to Duluth the propeller GLASGOW encountered a severe squall below Marquette. She ran under the lee of Grand Island and went aground. Before she could be released 70 tons of coal were jettisoned. At last account she was leaking some but her captain does not think her damage is serious enough to prevent her making her down trip.
