Caspian (Steamboat), 17 Sep 1851
- Full Text
The CASPIAN, Wards new steamer, is to take the place of the ATLANTIC, for a short time, in the North Shore line. She is a splendid affair altogether, and if possible, is an improvement on her predocessors. Capt. Ludlow has command, and this is 'nuf sed,' as to seamanship and general capability.
