The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Lowell (Brig), lost mast, 1 Jul 1852

Full Text

The late violent storm did some considerable damage to our lake marine. The brig HELFENSTEIN, while lying at anchor in Milwaukee Bay on the 1st inst. parted her cables, lost her fore-topmast and top-gallant-mast and struck on a ledge of rocks, causing her to leak badly. She however started for this port, and the officers of the U.S. Steamer MICHIGAN went to her relief and towed her into this port. She soon after sunk in twelve feet water, near the south pier. The brig LOWELL and SHAKESPEAR lost their fore-top-gallant masts in making this port. - Chicago Argus.
