Footnotes

  • Launched in 1868, the City of Perth, a vessel of 1189 tons, and was one of the speediest and most beautifully modeled iron ships built. Built on the Clyde by Connell & Co., she first engaged in the Calcutta trade, in which she recorded some fast runs. This was changed after the disaster she met with at Timaru, where, on May 13, 1882, she was driven ashore during the gales that also cast the Ben Venue away.
