The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
C. P. Williams (Brig), U4364, collision, 18 Jul 1868

Full Text

We learn that the prop. NEW YORK and brig C.P. WILLIAMScollided near West Sister Island night before last. The approach of the brig running across the propellers bow was seen by Capt. Hewett, and he stopped his vessel , so that he was nearly stationary when the brig passed, and as she did so she appeared to swing against the propellers bow. Her rail was broken, while the propellers stem was torn off. The brig continued on her voyage, but the NEW YORK leaked a trifle, and her captain returned to this port. and made temporary repairs, leaving again yesterday.
