Port of Providence RI Passenger Lists

Pointing out that Providence is the centre of the most populous part of New England, and that it forms a better European port for the commonwealth of Massachusetts than does Boston itself, the communication recites that a considerable proportion of the passengers who buy tickets for Missouri via the port of New York, change their minds while en route and ask to have their tickets altered so that they may disembark at Providence and continue west from this city.

The port already offers abundant opportunities for coastwise and foreign commercial and passenger service. There is ample space along the waterfront for warehouses and for manufacturing plants of endless variety with unrivaled facilities for receiving raw material and dispatching the finished product of manufacture, at the least possible expenditure in handling.
