History

80' approx. Original owner unknown, to H. Dickinson 1832. Built Prescott Ont. 1822. At first used Kingston-Prescott, run down rapids 19/04/32 to operate Cornwall-Coteau. Maiden arrival at Kingston 29/08/22. Seriously damaged in collision with "Niagara" 14/09/26 Prescott. Intended to be moved to Rideau Canal, drawn up rapids 27/06/34 but wrecked on the way at Point Maligne. "Arrangements are being made to raise her when, we trust, she will effect her way up the rapids and take her place on the Rideau line as was originally intended" (Cornwall paper quoted in Montreal "Gazette"). Actually raised late July and taken to Coteau; no further note. Nothing official on this one.
