Mouth of Kalamazoo River, March 21, 1844
Messrs. Dyer & Chapin:- Gusts on Sunday last on our passage here in the schr. Margaret Helm we fell in with the wreck of the schooner Wave of Chicago, about 10 miles S.S.W. of Kalamazoo Light, with both masts gone by the board, also her bowsprit, her best bower anchor down, apparently in deep water. The boat was gone and the wreck full of water. Nothing has been heard from the captain and the crew since our arrival here, and there is no doubt but that they have all perished. She was seen off here on Sunday, it blowing tremendously which was the last seen of her.
Your ob't. servant
