(nine-year-old Clara) was quoted as saying: "so crude that I cannot understand how people submitted to it". Another woman commented that she was glad to get off and that the boat was "a low crowded place moving along at a snail's pace". The quotes I took from interpretive signs near the artwork. The passenger service stopped in 1853, when traveling by train was possible.
Not sure if I will be writing from St.Louis anymore, in a week we will be heading east. Please stay connected!
