Full Text

A very tastefully gotten up steam pleasure boat bearing the name FANNIE WHITE, arrived here on Thursday evening direct from Erie, Pa. She has a beautiful model, with cabins of elegant construction, and fitted out with all the necessady conveniences for a pleasure craft. Since her arrival here she has been visited by a large number of admireres of this kind of craft, and who pronounce par ecdelience the bonnie boat. She was built at Buffalo something over a year ago for Evans & Co., of that city, by Hitchcock & Gibson, master builders; engine and machinery throughout by David Bell. She is 62 ft. in length and otherwise well proportioned. She was purchased by parties in Port Huron, we learn, for the low price of $3,500, and cost nearly double that sum. She is designed in future for pleasure parties, and is owned by Capt. William Stone. --- Detroit Advertiser.
