 Services of the late Dr. Hugh Williamson
Doctor Williamson, during his tour in Europe, and from subsequent observation by travel in this country, had early become apprised of the great facilities and advantages which the state of New-York so eminently possesses for an inland communication between its interior waters and the Atlantic Ocean.
As these remarks appear to be the first of Doctor Williamson’s productions on this subject, and were made at an early day with his characteristic foresight, I have thought it proper to give them a place in these pages.
In the summer of 1810 Dr. Williamson favoured the editors of the American Medical and Philosophical Register of New-York with a paper, entitled "Observations on Navigable Canals," which appeared in that Journal in October of the same year.
