British Whig (Kingston, ON), Nov. 27, 1884
- Full Text
p.3 A First Class Record - The str. Persia, trading between St. Catharines and Montreal, is now in winter quarters, after having completed a very successful season. She made 28 round trips, and during the season was not delayed one minute, wind-bound or through disarrangement or accident to her machinery. She has travelled 19,558 miles, 2,240 miles of this distance being through the various canals. She made 1,428 lockages, and that without damaging locks or the boat. Of the immense number of passengers carried not one met with the slightest injury. The commander, Capt. J.H. Scott, of this city, has much reason to feel proud of this record. He enters matrimony, is congratulated by his Kingston friends, and locates in one of Capt. Gaskin's new houses on Barrie Street.
Incidents Of The Day - The prop. Cuba will be taken to Port Dalhousie to be repaired.
The str. Hero makes her last trip up the bay to Picton and Deseronto on Saturday.
Donnelly & Sons have the contract to relieve the schr. Julia, ashore near Consecon. They will also raise the schr. Hannah Butler, sunk at Presque Isle. The Hastings left today with the party who work upon these vessels.
