p.2 English Injustice To Canadian Enterprise - about lake trade direct from Lakes to Europe - some history. [Toronto Colonist] with this addition:

"From the port of Kingston several vessels have sailed for transatlantic ports. The Lilla, built at Portsmouth, about 2 miles from this city, went first; the Cherokee, built for Capt. Gaskin, a three-masted schooner or lake bark, followed, and the publisher of this paper went home in her, making a pleasant and speedy voyage. Then followed the bark Cataraqui, and the ship Eliza Mary. From the West came the bark Reindeer and the ship City of Toronto, the latter built at Toronto, passing this port bound for Liverpool. The bark Arabia now in this port, is the vessel alluded to by the Colonist. She was built here, alongside the Cherokee, for Messrs. Boyd & Co., took in a cargo of wheat at Toronto, sailed for Liverpool, returned to Kingston and went on her western voyage to Chicago, where she was at the time being hailed as the first vessel to connect Liverpool with Chicago."
