Just surf this site over to the audio/video recordings of the different steamboats' whistles and you have your answer. My favorite is the BELLE OF LOUSVILLE's three bell whistle. It has authority but doesn't, "cause a grown man to cry," as Roddy Hammett once declared about the NATCHEZ's Lunkenheimer.
