The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Globe (Steamboat), 20 Mar 1856

Full Text

The note of preparation is everywhere heard, and the large fleet now in port, will come out in prime order, judging from the present appearances. The old steamer GLOBE has been thoroughly overhauled, and changed into a first class propeller of the largest capacity. It is expected that she will stow more than any other vessel on the lakes. She is reckoned capable of carrying 30,000 of corn, and we can assure our western friends that storage will be cheap whenever she arrives. She has been fitted up without regard to expense--has two new engines from the Buffalo Works attached to one shaft, on a new principle, with 10 1/2 foot wheel, and is expected to travel at a rapid rate. She is owned by Messrs. Maxwell & Co., and will be sailed by her old commander Capt. Pratt, who built the first propeller on these lakes.
