Description
Full Text

OBITUARY. -- The old bark GREAT WEST has been stripped of everything of value, and is to be towed out into the lake and scuttled. In her day she has earned lots of money, but she has now gone to decay. She measures 278 tons. She was built in Oswego by George Goble in 1854. If we had space an interesting article might be written on this old craft. We make space to give her a few lines anyway.
