The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), Nov. 20, 1837

Full Text

p.1 Steam Boat Telegraph - This is decidedly an excellent boat, safe, expeditious and steady - "walking the waters like a thing of life." Her Captain, Armstrong, is very much of a gentleman, presiding with dignity at the table and obliging and attentive to the wants and wishes of those who take passage with him. Having experienced his hospitality and kindness we can with great propriety bear testimony to his worth, and most cordially recommend both him and his boat to those who have occasion to traverse Lake Ontario.

p.2 The Fanny, of Niagara, has been wrecked off Eight Mile Creek. All hands saved. Vessel and cargo lost. [Hamilton Express]

work progressing at upper sections of Great Trent Canal.

p.3 The Editors Journey to Bytown - Chapter II - description of Kingston Mills, Brewer's Mills, Isthmus, Newboro, Portland, and Smith's Falls.
