Norseman (Steamboat), C96911, 24 Apr 1890
- Full Text
The steamer NORSEMAN was launched today after having been thoroughly scraped and cleaned. During the winter she was thoroughly overhauled internally and comes out a really fine boat. She will leave for Port Hope tonight to begin regular route to Rochester. The officers are : Capt. Howard Nicholson; mate, J. Jarrell; first engineer, T. Nilne; second engineer, A. Cummings; purser, J.W. Mitchell; steward, A.W. Stevenson. The many friends of Capt. Nicholson regret his departure from Kingston. As commander of the HERO for the past few seasons he was very popular not only here but at every port along the Bay of Quinte. He is a genial, obliging fellow and we are assured will make many friends in the west. Confidence repoured in him will not be misplaced.
