p.2 Letter From the Bay - description of Picton - ...."Those who visited Picton last summer must have noticed the rushes and sedges growing up to the bridge. The collection of mud and sand upon which this water vegetation throve has been all cleared away by powerful dredging machines, and steamers can now go up to the bridge. The machines will continue in operation, deepening the harbor and channel still further, during the whole of the present summer and fall. Mr. S. Washburn has made a new and substantial wharf, and erected a fine block of warehouses. Mr. J. Miller is now making a long range of wharves, sheds, and warehouses; and Mr. C. Mortimer a wharf and large stone store-house over the creek, all of which is most encouraging for the future commercial prosperity of Picton."....

Reward - for body of Lyman B. Fisk, lost on Ocean Wave, had ring inscribed L.B.F. from Wm. T.H.
