Due, I believe, to the common use of shortened names these next three companies become somewhat mixed up in dates, boats and ownership. The last of them was formed in 1856 after fierce competition between the Galena interests and the Dubuque interests. It was made up of the boats and principals of both cities with Daniel S. Harris and Jones Worden acting as the leading officers. Just to stir the confusion, the first and/or second of the companies was sometimes refered to simply as the Minnesota Packet Company. - - D.
