The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 Dec 1907

Full Text



The steambarge Glengarry, unloading coal at Swift's, is the last boat due with coal this season.

The elevator at Richardsons' was in good working order today, the main belt having been repaired. The unloading of the steamer Nevada was proceeded with, and the entire cargo was taken out by noon. In the afternoon the Nevada cleared for Toronto, where she will be laid up for the season.

The crew of the schooner Kitchen report the last trip of the season to have been a very rough one. Alexander Mitchell, the second mate, says that the trip was the roughest he has experienced. The vessel carried a cargo of coal from Charlotte to the Kingston & Pembroke railway wharf. The crew of the Ford River which came over from Charlotte at the same time, also report the trip to have been one of the roughest trips they ever experienced. Sailing on the lake in the month of December is no "snap," the sailors say.
