Princess Victoria (Schooner), 1 Mar 1836


Description
Full Text

Mr. Leonard Peck, so well known to all our readers, is building a schooner of 135 tons burthen, at Jenkins's ship yard, one mile and a half above Richmond. She is to be called the "PRINCESS VICTORIA," and it is supposed that she will be the largest vessel ever built on the British coast of Lake Erie. She will be launched on or about the first of June. We always thought this clock trade a good business, and Mr. Peck has certainly peddled to some purpose. He could not have found a more appropriate name than the one he is to call her; and it is a strong evidence that he is not entirely neglectful of the country under which he prosecuted successfully the business which has enabled him to commence such an enterprise. Mr. Jenkins has the building of the vessel, and from his known merits as a ship wright, we have no doubt the vessel will be as good as the name chosen for her.
