description The story of the Schooner Cardigan built at Mitchel River, by Neil and Murdock McLeod, and 48 tons, and owned by Capt Minter Keeping, of Georgetown, P.E.I. She was not built for speed, but she sure could sail, anything of her Size or larger. It is not the Size of a ship that makes her fast, but the speed that is in her. The spars of the Cardigan came out of the Pokohauntus owned by Daniel Gordon of Georgetown. Built in U.S.A., a vessel of 60 tons, but her spars were cut down for the Cardigan, and of pine. They were heavy built.
