p.2 Port Hope Harbor - the new harbor is full of timber, the old harbor contains several vessels; . . "The Sarah S. Marsh, commanded by Capt. James, is a lake clipper, which might circumnavigate the globe. Her appearance is odd enough. Having three masts, she is yet neither a barque nor a brig as, assuredly, she is not a pollywog. The foremast is square-rigged, after the manner of a brig or ship, while the main and mizzen masts are schooner rigged. Her appearance is very good, her capacity considerable, and she is that which it is very desirable every vessel should be - both wind and water tight. [Atlas]
