SS " LABRADOR,"
An old Traveller—writing on board the Steamer to the Editor of the Morning Chronicle—said "The 'Labrador' is not only a fast steamer but one of the most comfortable vessels I ever crossed in—exceptional, large, airy staterooms—without doubt surpassing that of any other steamship sailing from our ports."
Lord Aberdeen, when responding to the toast proposed by the Lord Mayor at the Banquet given at the Liverpool Town Hall, on Tuesday, November 22nd, 1898, in honor of Lord and Lady Aberdeen's return from Canada, said:—" We have arrived here under the most pleasant circumstances.
We had a voyage on the good ship ' Labrador,' of a most pleasant and satisfactory kind; in fact, I do not think anyone could wish to be better housed, if I may say so, than we were on that vessel, securing the highest amount of safety, comfort, and convenience for the time being."
