Bob Hackett (Propeller), 2 Apr 1875
- Full Text
On Monday morning the steamer BOB HACKETT began running between here and Windsor. Over forty passengers mad the first trip on board of her and she has been well patronized all the week, besides carrying a large amount of freight. She leaves Girdlestone's wharf every morning at 7:30, calling at Park & Kevill's and arrives at Windsor about 10 A. M. Returning she leaves Windsor at 4 P. M., arriving here about 6 o'clock.
The HACKETT has been completely refitted and repainted and is very comfortable, and Capt. Hackett and Purser King will always be found most accommodating in every way. The Detroit Post speaking of her says, " She will, as soon as the ice moves from the Canada shore of Lake Erie, include Leamington in her route. The HACKETT is a staunch little boat, well adapted for her place, and deserves to be supported. The Canadians will doubtless do it."
