The importance of having a good landing
the Delaware front or on the Christiana, very
ita mouth, is too plain to need explanation.
Its value has been admitted for a long time, and
the advantage whioh the oity would reap by hav
ing a whaif, at whioh the various river lines
could land, is apparent to all.
