Gallatin (Schooner), leak, 1 Sep 1875

Full Text

      The schr. GALLATIN, grain laden from Chicago, put into Milwaukee Friday morning, leaking so badly that she will have to discharge her cargo and go into drydock for repairs. The GALLATIN was out in the gale a week ago, and was forced to return to Chicago slightly damaged.

      The schr. GALLATIN was Wednesday placed in drydock at Messrs. Wof & Davideson's yard, Milwaukee, and the leak found to be caused by the oakum working out of an engraving piece under one of her bilges. Of her cargo of wheat 250 bushels were found to be wet and the balance badly damaged through heating.
