- Full Text
“David O’Hagan, Captain of the NELLIE THERESA, has the following good word to say of the life saving service at Wellington. He begins his letter by acknowledging the service given him in releasing his schooner, which was barley laden. He says: ‘We grounded on a portion of the sunken wreckage from the schooner T.C. STREET, off Clarke’s pier, Wellington, on the 20th Oct. inst. I ran out my anchor to try to heave her off with my own crew and what few men I could hire, but failed to move her. As men were not very plenty I was advised to call on the life-service, which I did. Capt. McCullough and crew responded promptly, and in less than half an hour they were on hand and ready for business. After consultation it was deemed prudent to relieve the vessel of part of her cargo, which was accordingly done. Meantime Capt. McCullough sent one of his men to the station for purchase blocks to heave her off, which we succeeded in doing after lightening her of about one thousand bushels of barley. In about five hours we had the vessel afloat without damage to either vessel or cargo."
