An Old Vessel - The Toronto United Empire Loyalist, of 29th September, 1827, says: The old Frontenac steamer had a hard time, and was towed into port after the fire. The owners wanted to find the incendiary, and so offered a reward.
"The Messrs. Hamilton, proprietors of the steamboat Frontenac, have offered a reward of 100 Pds. for the discovery of the person who set fire to the vessel some time ago. The Frontenac, after being fired, was loosed from her moorings, and had drifted some distance into the lake, when she was met by the Niagara, Captain Mosier, who took her in tow and succeeded in bringing her to the wharf at Niagara, where after some exertions the flames were extinguished."
The Frontenac was owned by Messrs. Robert and John Hamilton, of Niagara, but the partnership was dissolved in October, 1827.
