Courtney Burton out of layup

The Courtney Burton was laid up for two years in Toledo but came out this year to carry wheat from the Twin Ports to Buffalo in the spring and fall and other cargos, such as limestone and taconite, in the summer. It is here today discharging limestone but will then pick up its first wheat cargo in several months. It is replacing the Joseph H. Frantz and Kinsman boats taking wheat from Duluth to Buffalo.
