p.2 Launch - Yesterday afternoon the New Steamer Dawn, built for Messrs. H. & S. Jones, by Mr. Parkin, ship-builder of this Town, was launched, amid cheers of a large concourse of spectators. She is a good model, and went into her destined element in fine style. The Albion, under command of Capt. Johnson, was lying off the ship-yard, having on board, by the kind attention of the Captain, a goodly number of Ladies and Gentlemen of the neighborhood. After the launch she took the Dawn in tow and brought her into port.

[Brockville Recorder Sept. 30th]

p.3 The Late Trial - of the Board of Health - mentions that when government chartered steamers Gildersleeve and Fashion to carry emigrants, Hon. John Hamilton paid for a doctor to be carried on each; gave vessels' stores to those in need, and when it was hard to get crew for fear of the fever, to inspire confidence Hamilton himself rode on the steamers and acted as Superintendent.
