The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
John B Lyon (Propeller), U76199, 30 Apr 1881

Full Text

The new steamship JOHN B. LYON made a trip into the lake Saturday afternoon for the purpose of testing her machinery. She was towed down the river by the tug CASTLE. Much time was taken coming down on account of the crowded condition of the vessels in the river. The trip in the lake lasted about an hour, and satisfied all that her machinery and all other parts were perfect. Captain Frank Perew was well pleased with her, and was full of "life," as usual. Among those present were Mayor Herrick and several members of the City Council. A number of ladies also graced the deck. From the pier the ship was watched by a goodly number, and her fine appearance was remarked by all.
