High Water 1887 and the KATE ADAMS

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported in the Mid-South Memories section March 8, 2012 the following:  “The river here is as high as it was in 1882, being two feet and one inch above the danger line.  But Captain Cheek of the steamer KATE ADAMS, running from Memphis to Arkansas City, says he does not fear any flood, that the levees are all right on both sides of the river and can stand three and a half feet more water.”
