Evening Post, 30 September 1878, Page 2
ARRIVAL OF THE ST. LEONARDS FROM LONDON.
The ship St. Leonards was towed in by the Hinemoa at 9 p.m. on Saturday, which was very good work for the steamer, considering that it was 3.15 p.m. when she left the wharf, and the ship had to be brought up 10 miles to the Heads against a heavy N.W. wind. The St. Leonards is in charge of our old friend Captain Todd, and he deserves credit for the remarkably clean and tidy appearance of the vessel. The voyage may be called a fine weather one. there being only one or two hard blows throughout. She left Gravesend on the 27th June, crossed the Equator on 29th July, passed Tasmania on 17th inst, and arrived off Wellington Heads on Saturday morning. Mr. George Cameron, a saloon passenger, died of consumption on the 11th August. The passengers, whose names appear below, all speak in the highest terms of Captain Todd and his officers for their general attention during the voyage. The St. Leonards has a large cargo. Her agents are Messrs. W. and G. Turnbull and Co., and she was entered at the Customs to-day.
