"Route to West Point Shortened"

NEW FERRY ESTABLISHED
Route to West Point Shortened
Accommodations Provided at White House, Va.
Establishment of a new ferry at White House, Va., over the Pamunkey River, and making the shortest route to West Point, was announced  yesterday. Roads better than the average are also said to run through this section of New Kent County.
Accommodations for two automobiles are available on the ferry. The ferry consists of a lighter towed by a powerful launch, and is run by E.R. Allmond, of White House. The trip across the river takes ten minutes.
