From the Richmond Whig, 4/27/1865
IMPROVEMENT. - We learn that the Government has taken
charge, for the present, of all the wharves at Rocketts, and is rapidly fitting
them up with solid posts driven in the mud, and planked over with seasoned
3-inch plank, to facilitate the shipping. We could not but notice the ease and
rapidity of the working of the steam pile driver; this work is under the
supervision of Mr. Jno. S. Dobson, Master-Mechanic.
