The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Queen of the West (Steamboat), 25 Jun 1853


Description
Full Text

The new steamer QUEEN OF THE WEST, Capt. McBride, made a short trip this morning, and we were informed by those who went out in her, that she exceeds the expectations of all, as regards speed and strength. With twenty-nine pounds of steam, her engine made nineteen revolutions per minute, and that she made at the rate of nineteen miles an hour. When her machinery works smooth and everything is properly adjusted, we expect to see her run her twenty-two miles an hour with ease, between here and Cleveland. She is to leave on Monday morning for Cleveland, and will make the tour of the lakes.
