The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Kate Robinson (Schooner), 28 Oct 1853


Description
Full Text

We perceive at the grain house of the Central Railroad, a beautiful new schooner of the largest size, loading with wheat and flour for Ogdensburgh. She was built by McDermont of this city, and this is her first trip. She is commanded by Capt. McGinn. This handsome schooner is named KATE ROBINSON, in compliment to a young lady, the daughter of an eminent produce dealer in Boston who purchases annually from 80,000 to 100,000 barrels of flour in this market. If the original "Kate" is as handsome as her namesake, she must be a "picture," as Sam Slick says. - Advertiser
