Testimonial to Capt. Dunlop

We, the undersigned passengers by the steamer Kingston during her unfortunate accident in the Rapids at Beauharnois, desire to give thanks to a kind Providence, and express our sympathy with Capt. Dunlop, and our sense of his manly and seamanlike conduct during a time of considerable danger.

We further desire to express our thanks to Captain Dunlop and his crew for their prompt and efficient measures in securing the safety of the passengers. Whatever may be the cause of the accident we concur in the opinion that Capt. Dunlop (although in the hands of the Pilot) was justified in running the steamer ashore.

Upon our arrival at Lachine, we were indebted to Mr. O'Flaherty for his great consideration in telegraphing to Montreal for a special train to convey us to our destination. (signed by approximately 30 names)
