The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
B. W. Jenness (Propeller), 19 Jul 1867

Full Text

The new prop. B.W. JENNESS was launched yesterday from the shipyard of Messrs. J.M. Jones & Co. She is of about 400 tons burthen, and is intended for the lumber trade between the lake shore and Cleveland. She is a good craft, put together in the fine style for which Messrs. Stafford, Hayward & Jenness, who have lumbering establishments at Lexington, Sand Beach and Port Hope, and a lumber yard at Cleveland. They are worthy and enterprising gentlemen, and Mr. Jenness, in whose honor the new craft is named, was once a member of Congress from one of the New Rngland States. We have too few men in Congress from the sterling business class of which he is a representative. That is what ails us.
