p.5 Picton Correspondence - model of str. Hero made by former stewart Mr. Moreland, given to Capt. Nicholson.



The str. Glengarry and schr. Gaskin arrived from Port Arthur today laden with grain. They had a very rough passage and had to run into Charlotte on this lake for shelter. Near this place the steamer had to let the schr. Glenora, one of her tow, go and sail down.

Extensive repairs will be made during the winter to barges belonging to the Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Company. Prospects are good for a very large grain trade with the west next year. The port of Washburn, Wis., on Lake Superior, has been opened, and a vast quantity of corn will be shipped from there. This year several cargoes of grain arrived from the place.
