Aug 29 - Ashore at Port Sanilac, Michigan with Lumber; released. The schooner LOTTIE COOPER left here about 6 o'clock last night, bound for Drummond's Island to load cedar for Chicago with the wind east. At about 9 o'clock the wind hauled ahead and in missing stays she went ashore about a mile and a half below Port Sanilac. She has about four feet of water in her hold. Captain Grummond's wrecking tug Winslow will leave at 10 o'clock with a full wrecking outfit for her. There is no insurance on the vessel.
