Peter Hawker in a trip from Margate to London, England - 19 June, 1826, in the morning
from Journal entry, 19 June 1826, page 295:
[O]n the 19th, left by the ‘Dart’ steam packet at eight in the morning, and landed on the Tower stairs at half-past two, making the passage of about 84 miles besides offing &c. in six hours and a half. Nothing can surpass, in every respect, the perfection of these packets. Every accommodation, good living, reasonable charges, music on board, and, in short, every inducement to make it pleasant.
