p.5 A Big Undertaking - William Lesslie, of this city, has been awarded the contract to float the Allan steamship Bavarian, which is on a rock, sixty miles below Quebec. Several wrecking companies have been at work, but have failed to release the big vessel. Mr. Lesslie is now going to try, and feels sure he can accomplish the task. If he does so, it will be a great feat for Kingston's veteran marine wrecking expert. It is understood that if Mr. Lesslie succeeds, he will get one-third the value of the vessel.
