p.2 Grateful Captain Beard - Captain John F. Beard, of the wrecked schooner Baltic, has left for his home in Canada. He expressed his gratitude to the people of Oswego for their kindness and to Capt. and Mrs. Anderson and the members of the life saving crew. There was a tinge of sadness in his tone when he referred to his loss. "I expect to take passage tomorrow," said he, "but I hate to go and leave my vessel on the beach. She was all I had in the world besides my family. I owed some money in Oswego and I have managed to save enough off the vessel to pay all but thirty dollars."
Capt. Beard (Baird ?) is known as one of the most honest masters on the lakes as well as one of the most competent. [Oswego Palladium]
