p.3 Melancholy Disaster and Loss of Life - We learn by the mate of a vessel just arrived from up the lake, that the Schooner John Lillie, Capt. Keaho, capsized during the recent blow, when between Great Traverse and the North Manitou, and it is feared all on board were lost. The Indians first brought the news over to Manitou, who reported they had found eight dead bodies. The Lillie had on board 12 or 15 persons, passengers and crew. She was light and was proceeding up the lake for a load of bark, shingles, etc. [Chicago Journal]
