p.3 Loss of the Merritt - The Allan's S.S. Merritt foundered on Sunday in the Lower St. Lawrence during heavy weather. The captain and crew were picked up by a Norwegian vessel and brought to Gaspe. The Merritt began her career on Lake Ontario. She was built by the Messrs. Chaffey at Brockville 8 years ago, and made her first regular trip from their wharf in Kingston. She was too large to be profitable in these waters, and so for years has been employed on the ocean and Lower St. Lawrence.
