Libbie Nau (Schooner), collision, 2 Oct 1872


Description
Full Text

The schr. LIBBIE NAU grain loaded from Chicago, has arrived at this port disabled. On Sunday night while on Lake Huron during the severe gale she came in collision with an unknown fore-and-aft vessel painted white, when off Thunder Bay some 15 miles. The strange vessel is reported to have had no lights visible. It is quite probable that this vessel was the WHITE SQUALL, as the description thus far given agrees with that vessel precisely.
