History

Approx. 130x18. Owned by H. Dickinson & Co. Engines (2) by Fuller & Copeland, Hartford Conn. Sternwheel. Had 20' ladies' cabin, 43' gents' cabin. Had insufficient boiler capacity; never entirely satisfactory for intended service (Prescott–Dickinson's Landing.) "…in passing from an eddy to the strongest current in Rapide Plat [easiest of all the rapids] it was, in these places, sometimes found impossible to generate steam as fast as was necessary". (Montreal "Gazette") Boilers "altered" winter 1832-33, replaced entirely winter 1833-34.
