The Trip on the Chicora

On leaving Collingwood the steamer proceeded to Meaford to take on coal and remained in that lively and interesting place all night. During the evening a number of Ladies by invitation came on board and a pleasant hour or two was passed in dancing to the fine music of the band. On Friday morning early we were again under way and proceeded to Penetanguishene where a close inspection was made of the Reformatory Prison and grounds.


The following are resolutions passed on board the steamer Chicora the passengers.

"That we have great pleasure in testifying to the capabilities of the Chicora as a steamer easy and safe in rough weather and unusually swift at all times and recommend it with the utmost confidence to the travelling public of Canada and the United States.

That the enterprise of Messrs Milloy & Co. In placing a large rapid steamer on the route between Collingwood and Fort William, Lake Superior in connection with the Northern railway is worthy of every encouragement on the part of the Government and the public.
