The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Keystone State (Steamboat), 17 Dec 1851

Full Text

We hear that the favorite stm. KEYSTONE STATE for Buffalo and Dunkirk with some 3,500 bbls. of flour, about 1,000 dressed hogs, and tons upon tons of other articles of produce for eatern markets. It is to be hoped that Capt. Stone was able to get into the open lake without detention at the mouth of the river. We shall look anxiously for news of his success in the ardeous effort to make a trip to the lower end of Lake Erie at this late period in the year.

      The KEYSTONE STATE, we learn, is not in a very favorable berth at Malden, as fears are entertained that she may undergo damage from the running ice in the river. To make all safe, it is said that a raft of timber is to be built round her, and this will probably answer the end. This noble craft will, we hope, long remain on our waters.
