City of Berlin (Propeller), U126717, 17 Dec 1891
- Full Text
The honor of making the last sailing for the lower lakes from Chicago for the year goes to James Davidson's steamer CITY OF BERLIN. With the weather the way it has been for a week past, a much larger grain trade would have been done, had shippers cared for boats, but they had made their arrangements for the close- of navigation, and business is difficult to turnout of established ruts. Had shippers cared for boats at the existing rater, of freight and insurance, at least half a million bushels more would have been shipped during December than there was.
