The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Capt. Edmund Welch
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), 10 Mar 1876

Full Text

The only time the Captain ever beached a vessel was in the spring of 1849, when the schooner Albion, owned by Sylvester Doolittle, after breaking her centre board drifted ashore with anchor down three miles this side of Port Dalhousie. Although the vessel's stern was out of water when the storm subsided, the captain, his crew, and several farmers, whom he employed, went to work with such good will that the schooner was released and gone before one of Mr. Doolittle's propellers with pumps and other apparatus arrived at the scene.
