Swallow (Propeller), U115184, 10 Aug 1873
- Full Text
The new stmb. SWALLOW, elegantly fitted out, has made her appearance at this port preparatory to starting on her first voyage. As was stated in a previous article she is owned by D. Whitney Jr., and Capt. James Chase, the latter gentleman in command. The SWALLOW presents a fine appearance and is considered one of the best propellers in the canal trade on the lakes. Her carrying capacity will not vary far from 300,000 in lumber to which she will be mainly devoted.
