William Penn (Steamboat), 7 May 1829


Description
Full Text

The WILLIAM PENN, Capt. Wright, was built at Erie, Pa. in 1826, and is believed to be as strong built as any boat on the lake. Her tonnage is 220; power of engine, 120 horse; low pressure, can carry about 50 cabin passengers, besides those forward and on deck. In the repairs which this boat has undergone, a promenade deck, similar to that of the CONSTELLATION on the Hudson, which is calculated in fair weather, for the pleasure of the cabin passengers, and in foul as a protection to deck passengers; is a great improvement to the WILLIAM PENN. She will be ready by the first of May, or as soon as the ice leaves port.
