Latterly I have been following the fortunes of one shipload of emigrants who arrived at Nelson on November 27, 1879. The ship was the Opawa and, although the passengers landed in Nelson, they were destined for the West Coast and Marlborough as well as the Nelson region. They were almost the last immigrants to reach Nelson under the Vogel Scheme, with only the Eastminster to come, arriving on January 15, 1880.
