Missing the Boat



From an article entitled, "People Who Miss the Boat" about George Costello, the proprietor of a launch service in New York Harbor, in the Milwaukee Journal on this day in 1949:

"The Queen Mary, for instance, was slowed down on her trip out of the harbor recently when it was learned that a messenger with heart serum for one of the passengers had arrived at the pier too late. Cunard line officials called Costello, who rushed the messenger and the serum to the ship before she cleared the harbor."
