LAKE ERIE STEAM-BOATS
THE LARGE, FIRM-BUILT STEAM-BOATS
J. SHERMAN, JUN. MASTER, and
WALTER NORTON, MASTER,
Will ply, in concert, the ensuing season--the former from Buffalo, and the latter from Black Rock--to Detroit, for the exclusive accommodation of Passengers, and their Baggage, Furniture, and Farming Implements. One of these Boats will leave Buffalo or Black Rock every fourth day, touching on its way up, unless prevented by stress of weather, at Dunkirk or Portland, Erie, Grand River, Cleaveland, and Sandusky; and, on the same days, the other will leave Detroit, touching at the same places, on her passage down.
The precise days of the month on which the Boats will respectively sail, before they shall have made one or two trips, when a more definite arrangement will be published in the Gazettes, and in Hand-Bills. The Henry Clay will commence; & will sail from Black Rock to Detroit the moment the ice shall have left the Lake, (which from present appearances will be as early as the 20th inst.) and the Superior will sail from Buffalo four days after.
For passage, or freight, apply to Capt. Sherman at Buffalo, or Capt. Norton, at Black Rock.
April 10th, 1826.
