The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Albany (Schooner), 13 Oct 1835

Full Text

We notice that two or three new schooners are already on the stocks - it is to be hoped that others will be commenced soon: we have not vessels enough to meet the wants of our commerce; and there is every reason to believe that our commerce will be double, if not quadruple, next year to what it is this; it certainly will be if we are furnished with the necessary capital and means of doing it. This is the natural channel for the great commerce of the west, and when the business of transportation is yielding such rich returns to those in it, we should think that capital, vessels, and enterprise, would not long be wanting.
On Friday last we noticed in our harbor thirty-six schooners, four steamboats and a small fleet of canal boats. This speaks well for the growing commerce of Oswego.
