The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Planet (Schooner), 29 Jul 1845

Full Text

As we passed down Water Street this morning, our attention was drawn to a beautiful vessel, which we had not before seen in our harbor. The PLANET, Capt. Robinson, is a new schooner of 25 tons, built at Cleveland, and on her first trip to this city. She is a pretty model, and built for speed, with a view to run between this and Michigan City. This trade is becoming of some importance. There are two small vessels in it all ready, besides the steamboat CHAMPION, which makes a trip every Monday. The land route from Michigan City to this place is, in addition to the greater distance than by water, very unpleasant in the summer season, owing to the depth of the sand. Beside the passengers which take these small packets for this city, there is always considerable light freight as the market fluctuates in the two places. Our city has been in this way nearly supplied with oats and lime the past season. Merchants in Michigan City often find it convenient to order all description of goods from here, of which there may be a scarcity in their market. Success to the PLANET, and may it never wander from our system. - Chicago News, July 23.
