Extract of a letter from Buffalo, dated Feb 20, 1822 to the editor of the Utica Sentinel.

"The new Steam-Boat Walk-in-the-water, [sic] is building on Buffalo Creek, and not at Black Rock. It is a fine model, and will be much stronger than the old one. The ladies' cabin will be on the quarter-deck, which will render it airy and pleasant, and make it more roomy than the former boat. The workmen have begun to plank her, and it is confidently expected she will be ready to launch as soon as the ice shall be out of the creek in the spring."
