She went down in 250 feet of water in a few minutes after being discovered. Mr. Huff got one gafftop sail and the yawl, and brought them ashore. There was no person on board, and he could not tell whether she was loaded or not. Mr. Robert Clapp, insurance salvage agent for the board of underwriters, will look after the wreck.
