Final Voyage


"On a foggy afternoon with a moderate wind blowing, this old scow, the Quickstep, stranded on the shoals of Detroit Island. Her captain and owner, John Jessen, was bringing a cargo home to Washington Island when the accident occurred. The scow was declared a total loss, but Mr. Jessen collected no insurance on either the hull or the cargo which were valued at only &1000 and $230 respectively."
