Subject: happy? - Aug 7 (First commercial laker)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 07 Aug 05 - 10:25 AM

First trip of the first commercial laker, René-Robert Cavelier, sieur de la Salle's
Le Griffon on Lake Erie- 8/7/1679
La Salle built his ship on the banks of the Niagara River in 1679.

        My first trip dawn old Lake Erie,
        With some sailors to explore;
                A-singing, way, Niagara,
                Below Niagara Falls.
        Then I met Rosy O'Flannagan,
        Best of all the Buffalo whores.
                A-singing, way, Niagara,
                Below Niagara Falls.

                        "The Buffalo Whore," Text recorded by Ivan Walton 1934. See
                        Windjammers: Songs of the Great Lakes Sailors. Tune & chorus
                        by Lee Murdock.
