Looted the Oyster Sloop

New York, 1895

A reward has been offered for the apprehension of the vandals who riddled Capt. Edward Dayton's sloop Sunday night. The sloop was anchored in Patchogue river. On boarding her Capt. Dayton found her almost a wreck. Riggings and cables were cut, halyards unspliced, and several large rents were found in the sails.
