Welland Canal Navigation

The Welland Canal will be placed in good repair and open for navigation as soon as Lake Erie is free from ice above Port Colborne. Western merchants may rest assured that every facility will be afforded, as usual, in passing through this channel, with expedition and safety.

It having been intimated by some of the Buffalo papers that the recent temporary excitement, and subsequent precautionary military operations in these provinces, would prove a serious interruption to all commercial transactions between the two countries, and greatly impair the confidence formerly reposed in transporting American property through this canal - the directors avail themselves of this opportunity to assure all those who may be interested, that our laws, in this respect, not only remain the same as heretofore, but are strictly enforced.

George Prescott, Secretary
Welland Canal Office,
St.Catharines, March 20, 1838
