The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Merrill I. Mills (Tug), 31 Aug 1867

Full Text

The new steam tug MERRILL I. MILLS, of which a brief description was given a few days since, has at length been completed, and yesterday, while lying at the foot of Randolph St., was visited by a large number of citizens, who are more or less interested in commercial affairs. The construction of this craft is of no common order and we have no hesitation in saying that for strength and beauty of model, which has been got up especially to meet any and all requirements, she is without a rival. Everything pertaining to her completeness has been carried out with good taste and well planned. SHe is of the largest class and in the capacity of wrecker could not very well be improved upon. As we stated formerly she is commanded by Capt. Boynton, who has served many years on the lakes and rivers.
