From the Richmond Whig, 6/6/1865
A GREAT PUBLIC WANT just now is a city passenger railroad,
from the St. Charles Hotel, Main street, to Rocketts. A large amount of business
is now transacted at the wharves, and the construction of a railroad between the
points indicated, with a few good cars upon them, would prove a great
convenience. The road could be built in a week if some enterprising parties
would take hold of the matter, and bring on the rails and sills without delay.
We believe the investment would pay.
