The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Grace A. Green (Schooner), aground, 17 Sep 1857

Full Text

The schooner GRACE A. GREEN, of Buffalo, owned by Mr. Green the diver, while attempting to make this port during the fresh wind about 8 o'clock this morning, ran into the West Pier and knocked a hole in her bottom. She has been taken off by Messrs. Stephens & Presley, who will repair her.
      We understand the West Pier is left in its present unfinished condition by the present government, in order to diminish the mercantile marine of our lakes as fast as possible. It is doing the work satisfactorily. -- Cleveland Herald, Monday.
