      Iron steamer MOHAWK now running between Port Stanley and Buffalo.
      Daily British Whig
      October 27, 1852 p.2

The MOHAWK - This fine iron low pressure steamer is being prepared for the ensuing season. Her accomodations are being extended by the erection of staterooms on the upper deck. When all the improvements which are being made, are completed, she will be as commodious, safe, and tight a craft as there is upon Lake Erie. She is built of iron, with watertight compartments, which precludes the probability of her sinking, even should she be run down. She will be ready as soon as the navigation opens, to take her station on the Buffalo and Port Stanley route, and will be commanded by Captain Hollywood, whose urbanity and attention to his passengers are too well known to need any encomium from us. If comfort and safety in a steamer ensure patronage, we are confident the exertions of the owners of the MOHAWK, Messrs. Park & Macleod, to make her all that is desirable, will not go unrewarded, and that she will command her share of the traffic on her route. - Amherstburg (Ont.) Courier
