The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
William Lewis (Brig), U26245, 1 Sep 1855

Full Text

A new brig called the WILLIAM LEWIS, was launched at Oswego yesterday forenoon. The Palladium says " the LEWIS is of 314 tons, Custom House measurement; she is built after the clipper model, and will stow, fore and aft, about 15,000 bushels of grain, with a draft allowing her passage through the Welland Canal. Capt. Charles Parker is the joint owner with Mr. Lewis, and the building the vessel has been under his personal supervision from the commencement. No pains have been spared, or any material omitted, that would add to her strength and durability in construction, and her master builder, Mr. Rogers, may well feel a pride in accomplishing his work with such promptitude and satisfaction to himself and his employers."
