A Compliment - The Watertown Despatch says of Mr. John Elliot, steward of the Maud, that he is one of the best caterers in the Dominion, an opinion shared in by the majority of those who have had the good fortune to be on the Maud on any occasion when Mr. Elliot got up a special "spread."
The Watertown Despatch, speaking of the Masonic excursion on Wednesday, says: "Too much cannot be said in praise of the Messrs. Folger Brothers, of Kingston, owners of the Maud, for their care and attention to the details of the excursion. They are 'square' young men in every respect, and nothing was left undone by them for the comfort of the party. This is always so, and has been demonstrated scores of times before. And in Captain Hinckley they have an officer who knows fully his duties, and performs them in a gentlemanly, careful and upright manner." That's so.
