Williams for two years as agent for the Neptune Steamship Company
for their line to both Boston and Providence direct from New York,
at first taking the agency at Boston for the outside line direct to New
York, with his office at Central Wharf, and also for the inside line via
Providence, with his office at 15 State street. The steamers of the
outside line were sold to the Metropolitan Steamship Company, and
the management was therefore changed, and Mr. Rockwell retired
from the agency, but continued with Mr. Williams until the end of
the term of two years. In 1867 he received an appointment as agent
of the Providence and New York Steamship Company at Providence,
R. I., succeeding Mr. J. B.Gardiner. He filled this position six years,
four years under the management of the late Benjamin Buffum, and
two years later under that of William Sprague.
