FORWARDING FOR 1847.
The Undersigned having entered into Co-partnership for the purpose of carrying on the Forwarding Business between Kingston and Montreal (and vice -versa) via the Rideau Canal and River St. Lawrence will be prepared on the opening of the Navigation, with a NEW STOCK OF STEAMERS AND BARGES, capable of carrying 20,000 barrels of Flour per month, to send forward any property which may be consigned to them.
From their experience and knowledge of the Business, they trust to be able to give general satisfaction, and solicit a share of public patronage.
The Business will be carried on in Montreal at the Stores occupied last season by Hilliard and Walker, under the name and Firm of Smith & Glassford, and at Kingston under the name and Firm of Glassford & Smith.
