"Auction Sale Of Steam Engine & Barge!", Windsor Albemarle Times, 29 January 1875

Notes
Apparently the KALULA's steam engine and boiler had not sold for $500.00. Now more desperate to unload the engine and boiler, the Askews decided to auction off the engine and boiler to the highest bidder. The Askews also planned to auction off a barge. Together, the barge, steam engine, and boiler could be turned into a small steamboat.
