p.2 The Rochester - There cannot be a more delightful trip than that from Kingston to Picton, or Belleville, by the fine steamer Rochester. The scenery is charming and cannot fail to delight those who have an appreciation of the beautiful in nature. The Rochester is fitted out with special regard to the comfort of her passengers. Captain Campbell and the officers of the boat are cautious and attentive to travellers. The table is well got up and abundantly supplied - not by any means an unimportant point. Indeed there is nothing wanting about the Rochester which a traveller would require. A first-class boat, attentive officers and a good table - what more is required?
