Massillon (Schooner), U16431, leak, 18 Jun 1876
- Full Text
LEAKING. -- The MASSILLON, which arrived here Sunday from Cleveland with a full load of coal for Windsor parties, was leaking badly. She was in ordinary a month before starting, so that her top sides became dry, and when she was loaded down she was found to be making water badly. She arrived here Sunday during the gale with her pumps working. The tug HERCULES towed her into the dock at Windsor, where she at once began to discharge cargo. When unloaded she will probably have her upper sides caulked. The MASSILLON is an old but reliable craft, and is regarded as very seaworthy. --- Detroit Post, 20th.
