The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Orient (Schooner), 26 Apr 1870

Full Text

Tomorrow morning at 10:00 the schr. ORIENT, now on the stocks at the boat yard of Messrs. Parsons & Humble, Tonawanda, will be launched. This vessel is of 600 tons capacity, is the property of the builders, and is designed for the lower lake trade. The launch will be very interesting, from the fact that the ORIENT stands fully rigged for sea and will so "take to the water." The running of trains on the Niagara Falls road will make it convenient for parties to witness the launch and return to the city in good season.
