To the Editor of the Daily News

Steamer Monarch, Lake Ontario, Nov. 1856

Sir: - Thinking you might not take it amiss, I propose to amuse myself, if not your readers, by giving a few particulars of my travels West.

It is now early in the morning after a good night's rest, although it was storming when we left Kingston and heavy swells are now running, I can write here as well as I, if not yourself, could in your editorial chair. This speaks well for the ability of the Monarch to stand heavy weather. She is fitted up, however, as a freight steamer; and the load she took out, I should think, was never surpassed. Thus far I have enjoyed it much. It is the next best thing to camping out in the woods. There are about half a dozen carpenters at work on the upper deck, and you must think we are pretty full....(also describes fishing nets on beach at Port Colborne.)

Port of Kingston - Imports - 12,13; Exports - 13.

The Bay of Quinte - how it got its name.
