The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Cleveland (Steamboat), 17 Oct 1837

Full Text

The steamboat CLEVELAND left this port on Tuesday morning last, and arrived at Buffalo the same evening, making the trip in fourteen and a half hours, between the two ports, including several stops for slight repairs to the engine As this was the CLEVELAND's first trip, and the shortest passage, we believe, ever made between the two places, this performance will be satisfactory to her owners, promising as it does the fulfillment of their highest expectations. As a sea boat, the CLEVELAND proved herself on the return trip, to be equal if not superior to any boat upon the lakes. She is as firm and steady as the staunches ship, and rides the waves with the least possible motion. We shall all have to wait for some time it is believed, for the equal of the CLEVELAND in every requisite which a passenger looks for in a boat. The ILLINOIS, the MILWAUKIE, and the MANHATTAN will offer themselves as competitors in the spring, and then we shall see - what we shall see.
