Lady Franklin (Propeller), U14827, aground, 26 Nov 1872

Full Text

The prop. LADY FRANKLIN went ashore on Kelley's Island reef, Tuesday night. Word was brought over on the EVENING STAR , and the owners at Cleveland notified, who telegraphed Capt. Whetstone, of the tug MYSTIC asking him to go over and pull the FRANKLIN off, but owing to the low water in the vicinity he was unable to comply with his request. It is said that the FRANKLIN is over 2 ft. out, and in a bad position. The MYSTIC will probably go to her relief.
