[Note 106.1] The Eagle was built in 1816 [ref: Ransom, P; Bell's Comet: How a Little Paddle Steamer Changed the Course of History, p122]

Ransom suggests that the vessels depicted here are probably The Eagle with the Swift in the background to the right; and that the American ship in the background to the left is artistic licence.[Ransom p108]. The Early Clyde Steamboats website however suggests that it might be the Argyle another Tyne-built vessel [ref: http://www.dalmadan.com/?p=1101]
