Anyone for a Trip to the Island?

That safe and convenient boat, the PENINSULA PACKET, will leave Mr. Maitland's wharf at the foot of Church Street, every day at the hours of 10, 12, 2, 4 and 6 o'clock, returning at 11, 1, 3, 5 and 7, precisely. A limited number of Family Season Tickets will be issued, for which an early application is solicited, at 4 each, fare to and from the Hotel 7 1/2d.

Children entrusted to the care of the Proprietor on the boat will be carefully attended to.

Horses and other cattle can be conveyed over for Pasture by the first boat - not after.

Lunches, Dinners, and Pick-nick Parties will be supplied with all the delicacies of the Season, Also, an abundant supply of fresh milk. The refreshing and healthful breezes of the Lake have been highly recommended, and the beneficial results so well known, as to need no further comment.

The Proprietor hopes that the same kind patronage will be extended to him which he received last year, for which he begs to return his respectful acknowledgments.

A light will be burning on the wharf until 11 o'clock at night.


Peninsula Hotel, May 17, 1847.

From the "British Colonist" dated at Toronto, Tuesday, May 25th, 1847. A bit different from a crossing on the WILLIAM INGLIS!

Our thanks to Jim Kidd for discovering this priceless bit of local history.
