The Golden Light under command of Captain C. F. Winsor, sailed from Boston on her
first voyage bound for San Francisco, February 12, 1853, and ten days out was struck
by lightning which set fire to cargo in the forehold. After every exertion had been made
to save the vessel. Captain Winsor gave orders to abandon the ship, and at 6 p.m.,
February 23d, her people took to the boats. At that time, the ship was in flames. Her
foremast had burnt off and fallen; soon after her main- and mizzenmasts went over the
side. She had eleven passengers, including three ladies who were in the long boat with
the captain. There were five boats in all, four of which, after being adrift eight days, were
picked up by the British ship Shand from Calcutta bound for Boston; the other boat, in
charge of the mate, reached Barbados in safety, so that all hands were saved.
The Wood Sailing Cargo Vessel Barque William Shand was launched February 16,
1839. She was owned by William Shand & Co, Liverpool; retired in 1859.

Recently purchased from a Martha’s Vineyard family. The Nantucket Historical
Association, Harvard University and other institutions have published the Memorial and
Remonstrance of Harvey Crocker
and 220 others, legal voters of Nantucket against the
petition of E.J. Pompey & 104 others. Jan. 1845; petitions for and against Integrating
Nantucket Schools. Petition drives were widely used to promote reform movements in
the nineteenth century. Early in 1845, six petitions were submitted to Boston. Four
advocated school integration and the passage of a law guaranteeing equal access to
education. Two defended the school’s policy of segregation. The State legislature took
the side of those who argued for equal rights and passed Chapter 214 of the Acts of
1845. This groundbreaking law prohibited discrimination in the public schools of
Massachusetts and guaranteed equal education to all students.
