Robert L. Fryer (Propeller), U110766, sunk by collision, 1895

Full Text

A loss of about $36,500 must be settled as a result of the steamer ROBERT L. FRYER's injuries through being sunk in the Sault river after her collision with the Mutual line steamer CORSICA. About $26,500 will be required to cover injuries to the hull, $3,000 for loss on machinery and $8,000 for raising the vessel. The FRYER is in one of the docks of the dry dock company, Detroit, and repairs on her will be hurried. Smith, Davis & Co. of Buffalo sustain a loss of about 60 per cent. of this risk and the balance is divided between Worthington & Sill, David Vance, C. W. Elphicke & Co. and C. A. Macdonald & Co.
