St. Paul (Propeller), U23755, 30 Mar 1879
- Full Text
On Tuesday the propeller St. PAUL will have completed her fitout, and as soon thereafter as possible will start for Alpena and Mackinac and all way ports. During the past winter this boat has received new arches, main deck, fender wales, piston and cylinder heads, besides being refastened her entire length. The St. PAUL and MARINE CITY will form the "People's Line' and run the same as last season. Capt. Boynton says the St. PAUL has not been in such good condition in the past seven years as at present, and an examination of her fully confirms his statement. All her appointments are truly elegant, and her cabin is large and more than ordinary roomy. She was built for the Lake Superior trade by Capt. Eber Ward, a fact that attests all that has been said. Below are her officers:
Master, L.R. Boynton, who has no superior.
Clerk, Andrew McGill, than whom a better cannot be found.
Mate, Theo. Holbrook
Engineer, James Savage
Steward, Alfred Robinson.
The boat will carry a string band the entire season. Her dock will be at the foot of Griswold Street, and Ashley & Mitchell her agents.
