I read the following on page 29 of Fisler: “The Richard Stockton, by far the most magnificent steamer on our waters, and the largest boat that ever ran up our river, was built at Wilmington, Delaware, in 1852, by Harlan and Hollingsworth, highly celebrated builders. Her length is 30 feet longer than that of the John Stevens. Her commander is the young and accomplished Capt. Douglas Thompson.”
Will not one of you take the hint and do some research on this namesake vessel? We ought to know more about the RS and then write up a short blurb for the newsletter.
