3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 At 11 ½ AM, at the little floating wharf of Bonn, we were picked up, together with thirty or forty nice looking travellers [sic], by the “American” steamer Humboldt, a medium size boat of light draught, very tastily, neatly and conveniently planned. Just the thing for the Rhine.  There are two of them on this river and they have gained and a deserved notoriety for their superior model and speed.       On the main deck is a fine promenade from stem to stern, covered with awning, furnished with plenty of seats and small tables. The Engine and firing rooms are plainly visible through their raised skylights, displaying machinery of great power, beautifully polished, with clean floors and neatness everywhere.
