Book Description GPO, Washington, D.C. Soft cover. Condition: Good. 1839, removed, 7pp. Wrps. G. 25th Congress, 3rd Session, House of Representatives, Document No. 87. The unknown authors of this paper, who refer to themselves as the memorialists, wanted to strengthen considerably the act of Congress passed in the session of 1837 relating to steamboat navigation. They suggested many amendments to that act, calling for stricter examination of the steamboats themselves, and all who work on them. They summed up their recommendations as follows: "Your memorialists would further represent that they have examined and have well considered the causes by which so many fatal disasters have occurred on boats navigating our Western and Southern rivers, and that they firmly believe, by adopting the above sections presented to your honorable body in this memorial, and their passage into an act of Congress, that many of the disasters incident to our navigation, and so fatal to loss of life and property, will be prevented." It seems that explosions on steamboats were a fairly common event during the time period covered, and that determining the cause and placing the blame were often difficult. Seller Inventory # 05669
