Dr William Plumer Jacobs in on a trip from England to New York - at the end of 1886
from Diary of William Plumer Jacobs, page 263:
In the evening all of the Presbyterian ministers on board went out on the bows of the ship and held an open air meeting for the steerage passengers. Bro. Thorn of Canada presided. I preached. We had about 100 or more seated about us on the floor. The Roman Catholic passengers got up an opposition hullabaloo, shouting, laughing, singing, knocking, and hand-clapping but we carried our meeting through. The strain on my voice was very considerable.
