Full Text

The schooner RICHMOND, Capt. Keith, with a cargo of poplar wood, was struck by a squall on Lake Ontario, a few miles off Charlotte, Saturday night at 10:00. The vessel missed the piers and was driven down the lake. When off Irondequoit Bay she sprung a leak and sank. The crew of 4 men and one woman cook took to the rigging and remained there until 9:00 Sunday morning, when they were rescued in a half frozen condition by the yacht CONFIDENCE, off Nine-Mile Pt., where the vessel had drifted during the night. No lives lost.
