The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Milwaukee (Steamboat), broke machinery, 1 Sep 1840

Full Text

The gale which prevailed during Saturday night, abated somewhat toward evening yesterday, the wind at the same time veering around to the North. Immediately thereafter the MILWAUKIE, WISCONSIN, ALLEN and FAIRPORT, got up steam and started for the West, the 2 latter boats being literally crammed with passengers and heavy inventories of merchandise.
      After progressing a few miles the MILWAUKIE disarranged her walking beam, and in company with the WISCONSIN returned again to port. The other 2 found a comfortable haven under the Iee of Pt Abino. All are now out again breasting their way through the broad expanse of Erie's bosom. (2-2)
