- Full Text
.... Some of our merchants have been let in to a pretty large extent by advancing goods, furnishings etc. to the owners of the S.A. MARSH a vessel which was damaged in a storm some years ago since which she has been lying at this harbor. A party of speculators recently became possessed of her, obtained all credit they could in repairing her, amounting in all to some five or six hundred dollars and remunerated their credit by telling them [the owners] if they ever succeeded in disposing of the wreck their creditors might succeed in obtaining something otherwise the thing is hopeless.
