Default What does "Dr" mean?

Clarington, OH celebrated its history with the annual Sunfish Creek Festival this past weekend. During the event we had a great crowd in the museum and several asked what the letters "Dr" stand for after the name of a steamboat/packetboat on the freight bills. Those letters also can be found on the stationary of older businesses of the period as well. Had several guesses but none seem to match, i.e. "Direct receipt," "Daily run," and so forth...

Anyone know the meaning??
