Last month, in our feature on the Kirkwood operations, we mentioned that the final disposition of the steamer GREYPOINT was not known. We have been advised by member Dan McCormick of Massena, New York, that a ship of the sane name and similar tonnage was being pursued by the U. S. Coast Guard on the east coast during the Twenties, presumably after she left the lakes. It seems the vessel was being used as a rum runner under the temporary name of ECONOMY. The U.S.C.G. finally captured her one night as she was trying to slip into New York harbour under cover of darkness. They apparently ran her on Robbins Reef, preventing her escape.

More please.
