Description

""Princess Marguerite": Four hours' sail across the Strait of Georgia brings one to Victoria and nine hours down Puget Sound is the big American city of Seattle. A fleet of fast Canadian Pacific steamers maintains a triangular service between these three cities; of this fleet the "Princess Marguerite" and "Princess Kathleen" -- the fastest ships in the North American coastwise business -- are the chief."
