p.2 letter from editor written on board steamer Princess Royal, dated July 18th -
...."On the principle of praising the bridge that carries one safe over, it is customary for editors to flatter up the steamers in which they travel; consequently I should do the amiable to the Princess Royal, but I abstain, for this really excellent and seaworthy steamboat stands in need of no praise of mine; neither does her most obliging and well respected master, Capt. Jas. Dick. I pass them over to say one word in favor of the "Model Steward" of Canada, Mr. Dennis Hurley, than whom cannot be found a more attentive, or more obliging public servant, in the whole length and breadth of the land. But it is not for these qualities alone that I single him out, for attention and an obliging disposition are to be found on board many other vessels besides the Princess Royal; but for acuteness, knowledge of the world, and knowledge of passengers, Mr. Dennis Hurley cannot be matched in Canada or the United States, and that is saying a big word."
