Clipper Vision (Schooner), U5404, waterlogged, 23 Oct 1877

Full Text

The scow mentioned yesterday as being waterlogged near Kelleys Island was named the CLIPPER'S VISION, bound from Port Huron to Cleveland with a cargo of stoves. The Sandusky Register says: As soon as it was known on the Island that the accident had occurred a despatch was sent to Marblehead, asking that the government life-boat and its crew be sent to the assistance of the men on the scow. The lifeboat was hastily manned, and the crew pulled away rapidly towards the unfortunate vessel, but as soon as they reached her the found that the scow's crew had abandoned her. After six hours of hard work against the heavy sea, the life-boat crew landed at East Harbor, where they found the crew of the scow all safe.. We gleam these facts from a letter written by a friend on Marblehead to Mr. William Senn of this city.
