Description
Full Text

The stm. WESTERN METROPOLIS, formerly of the Cleveland and Buffalo line, which last fall was dismantled of her machinery and cabins, is being converted into a first class bark, with nearly the same dimensions as before, her length some 280 ft., and beam the same as formerly. She was purchased by H.A. Frick, and will be in readiness for commission on the opening of navigation. Her model has been slightly modified, her hull strengthened and refastened, and from what we can learn, she is destined to prove a fast sailor, and carry an immense cargo. - Detroit Free Press
