Full Text

A letter from a well known Oswego vessel master to Commodore Thomas Crimmins of the Oswego tug fleet, dated Buffalo Sept. 16 says: "I thought I would drop you a few lines and inform you of the race that is now to come off between the schooners Bolivia, Leadville and Jamaica, for a purse of $35, the two latter to give the Bolivia twenty four hours the start.

"The mammoth schooner Sage, Capt. Holland, was going into the pool, but he weakened. Capt. Chatteau also wished to join the pool, but he was barred out by the committee, he wanting too much leeway. Lyons & Son hold the stakes and re to present the winner with an elegant campaign flag."
