The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Fintry (Propeller), 13 May 1853

Full Text

The prop. FINTRY, the second of J.L. Hurd & Co.'s Detroit and Buffalo Line, is now ready for business. She will leave for Buffalo on Saturday evening. The FINTRY is a Detroit made boat throughout, and will compare favorably with any vessel of her class on the lakes. She is of very large dimensions, being 700 tons burden. Her cabin is fitted up in good style, and we noticed that all the stools in the sleeping rooms were provided with life-preservers. She is commanded by Capt. S.G. Langley, an experienced sailor and a good fellow. In the course of a week or two, the FALCON also will be ready for running, and the line will then be complete, and tri-weekly trips will be made between this port and Buffalo.
