The Yarmouth Herald, Tuesday, April 30, 1907


"The latest product of Joseph McGill's shipyard at Shelburne is the steamer ENTERPRISE which he has been building for the New Burrell Johnson Iron Co. of Yarmouth. The ENTERPRISE was successfully launched on Saturday evening last [April 27], and is an able looking and handsome craft. She is an exact duplicate of the DUFFERIN, which Mr. McGill built in 1904 for Capt. William Murdock of Sherbrook, being from the same model, with the same passenger and freight accommodations. Her principal dimensions are: 125 ft. overall, 25 beam, 9 ft. hold. She will be towed to Yarmouth to receive her machinery. She will be owned by the Three Rivers Steamship Company of Georgetown, P.E.I. and is to take the place of their present boat, the Electra. The ENTERPRISE will be commanded by Capt. William McLiren, who paid a visit to Shelburne last week to inspect the new steamer, and was highly pleased with her."

Clipping passed along by Harold G. Simms, Norwell, Massachusetts, maternal grandson of McGill's Master Shipbuilder, Amos Pentz.
