Excerpt from The Steam Engine, Steam Navigation, Roads, and Railways: Explained and Illustrated
The Second and Third Parts are for the most part new. In the third chapter of the Second Part will be found a review of the progress of Steam Navigation, from its first establishme... nt in 1812 to the present day. This chapter also contains the refutation of those absurd reports which have been generally circulated, imputing to the author opinions as to the impossibility of the Atlantic voyage, which are precisely the reverse of those he really expressed.
