The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego County Whig (Oswego, NY), Wed., April 29, 1840

Full Text

To travellers going West we recommend them to take the Oswego or lake route. It is altogether the most easy, pleasant, expeditious and economical. At Syracuse you leave the railroad and take a packet or stage to Oswego; there you will find a splendid steamboat, managed by gentlemanly, accommodating officers, on board of which you will get your accustomed rest. At Lewiston, you again take the cars and by the present arrangement you may spend an hour or two at the Falls and then arrive at Buffalo some hours quicker than by the other routes.

At Syracuse we were told by the Agents of the various lines through Rochester and Auburn, a number of false stories about the Oswego route. We have tried both and have no hesitation in giving the latter a decided preference. Try it. - Oxford (N.Y.) Times.
