James E. Eagle (Propeller), U11668, collision, 9 May 1860

Full Text

A collision took place yesterday forenoon by the bark LADY OF THE LAKE coming into contact with the propeller J.E. EAGLE, which lay at the foot of Woodward Avenue. The bark was in tow of the steamer GEM, which could not control her, owing to the strong wind which was blowing at the time. The propeller's bulwarks and stanchions were carried away near the stern, damaging her $50 worth.
