The Grand River Times, July, 1851
Trade with Boston.
We noticed in passing along the docks a few days since, the Brig James McBride, loaded with Walnut and Cherry lumber, destined for the Boston market. We are glad to see out enterprising lumbermen seeking some other market besides Chicago, that will repay them something like a remuneration for their products. This is the first experiment, and if it pays well, immense quantities will be shipped from this place, as our forests will supply inexhaustible quantities.
