letter to Mr. Maloney:
"I have your letter of the 8th inst.
with reference to the ferry landing

"It is a well-recognized fact among
steamboat men that the foot of Canal

full and food stages of the river, on
account of a strong eddy that extends
at times from Conti street to about

this eddy running so strong as to
cause the ferry to miss. Its landings
