Lady Franklin (Propeller), U14827, broke machinery, 2 Jul 1863
- Full Text
DISABLED. - The propeller LADY FRANKLIN, while on the passage down from Chicago, last Thursday, and while on Lake Michigan, broke her shaft. The propeller PITTSBURGH, also bound down, came along shortly after the accident, took her in tow, and was expected to arrive in the St. Clair River yesterday afternoon. The FRANKLIN will doubtless come on to this port for repairs. - Detroit Free Press.
