The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Peter Robinson (Steamboat), 1 Jul 1834

Full Text

A new steamer belonging to Charles Thompson, Esq., has been put in operation on Lake Simcoe, under the approptiate title of PETER ROBINSON, called after the Hon. gentleman to whom that country is much indebted for its present advanced state of prosperity. She is to ply on both sides of the lake, on alternate days. It is stated that for beauty of construction and rapidity of movement, she equals most of the boats upon Upper Canada waters.
      Her engines were made by the foundry of Messrs. Ward & Co., of this city and put up by Mr. James Irwin of that establishment, who has already exhibitied his superior talents as an engineer by the manner in which he has fitted up the machinery for the CONSTITUTION, now plying on Lake Ontario between several British ports and Rochester.
