The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Albatross (Schooner), aground, 1 Oct 1877

Full Text

The tug WINSLOW, which for some days has been working at the schooner ALBATROSS, ashore near Middle Island, Lake Huron, arrived at this port yesterday. She reports but little progress made in raising the wreck, which the combined efforts of a 9 and a 12 inch pump, could not be freed. The WINSLOW was last night taking on a 14 inch pump at Grummond's dock, which with the two others and a number of air-tight cases making at Port Huron, and to be used in the hold of the ALBATROSS, it is believed, will keep her afloat beyond doubt. The ALBATROSS is not believed to have suffered much damage. She is on very fast and could be hauled off, but it is preferred to float her and avoid straining. - Detroit Post, Oct. 24.
