The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

Full Text

The prop. SAMSON, Capt. Robertson, leaves port today for Chicago, &c. The SAMSON has been strengthened and improved in every manner possible, and her accommodations are much superior to those of any steamboats a few years ago.
Capt. Robertson was a school mate of ours at old Joe Nelsons in new York, and a classmate in Columbia College. We have known each other since we were the merest boys, and have been thrown together in most parts of the world. Capt. R. is a seaman and a gentleman, and to those who wish to find an intelligent companion we can recommend him as one better versed in the varied learning of the day, and the past ages, than they will likely find elsewhere.
Everything on board his vessel is well arranged, and he will not only attend to the comfort but the amusement of his passengers. His table is good, his accommodations are good, and if his officers are not the same we shall be mistaken in his selection.
