The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Henry Clay (Propeller), 1 May 1849

Full Text

PROPELLERS.---The propeller built at this place last winter, the name of which has been changed to HENRY CLAY, arrived on Saturday last from Cleveland, where she has been to receive her machinery. She is certainly a fine looking craft, and very creditable to her owners and builders. Capt Root tells me that she is just what he bargained for, and by the way, he never bargained for a poor craft and if he had, he would'nt have got it of Ruggles and Shupe -- its out of their line. She is advertised to run through the season between this place and Buffalo, and will furnish a very pleasant means of travel. ------- Milan Tribune
