p.3 Collinsby - Since Mr. William Leslie has had the management of the Rafting Company's business at Collinsby he has inaugurated a series of improvements which cannot be over estimated. The latest and best changes made under Mr. Leslie's supervision is that by which the unloading of timber vessels is greatly facilitated. A craft can now be relieved of a cargo in six hours, by the use of steam machinery. The apparatus, it may therefore be presumed, is of a superior order.

-The Salt Pointers Claim - lost salt when British captured Oswego in 1812.

Wind Wafts - yacht Ina mentioned.
