Kingston 8th December, 1827.

Mr. Thomson,


The Owners of the Steam Boat Toronto beg leave through the medium of your paper, as soon as possible, to return their most sincere thanks to their friends and the inhabitants in general of Kingston, for their prompt assistance during the very heavy gale of wind on Thursday last; particularly to Mr. James Atkinson, Mr. Timothy McGuire, young Messrs. Cunningham and Ives, for their very great exertions on that occasion. Had it not been for their alacrity at the moment, it is more than probable the Boat would have been much damaged or perhaps a total wreck.

signed H'y Baldwin, Master.
