Description
Full Text

The small stm. CHAMPION, as many are probably aware makes her appearance occassionally at Windsor, from Pt. Pelee Island, and with our old friend Capt. McCormick in command, in a convenience to those wishing to travel that way. There are those desirous of knowing from whence came this commodious craft. She was a few years since known as the SAM LEWIS, built at Detroit, afterwards sold to Canadians and name changed.
