“Before the sun was up this morning, Miss Anthony and two bright girls from Brooklyn manned a small sailing craft and went up the lake. They invited some merchant princes to take a seat on board, and remain quiet spectators of the scene. They performed some very difficult evolutions. In one rather dangerous maneuver, a gentleman, becoming a little nervous, was threatened with the fate of Jonah, which immediately brought him to order.”
