Voyage Account
The Loch Cree is a sister ship to the Loch Fleet which was here some few months ago and like her belongs to the Loch Line. She is under command of Captain Jno. Jones, this being his first command. Passage 79 days from land to land. 82 days from the Lizard to anchorage. Left London Docks Dec. 11; the Downs Dec. 13, took departure from the Lizard on Dec. 19. The surgeon of the ship is Dr Hockbridge. Those in the second cabin were lodged in the half-deck, while the steerage passengers and immigrants were quartered aft in the 'tween decks. They presented anything but a pleasing appearance. The voyage was a pleasant one.
