Description
Full Text

The launch of the steel steamer I. W. NICHOLAS at the Cleveland Ship Building Company, Saturday, was distinguished by the presence of a venerable old lady, whose life has been closely associated with the advancement of lake commerce. Mrs. Minch, seventy-six years of age and widow of Philip Minch, who was the father of Peter Minch and grandfather of the managing owner of the Nicholas, witnessed the launch of a steel steamer that will carry a cargo five times as large as that of the largest lake craft at the time when her husband first became interested in a very modest way in lake floating property.
