Evening Post 13 September 1887
The New Zealand Shipping Company's R.M.S. Aorangi, Captain Sutcliffe, from London, arrived off the Heads last night but weather being thick did not get in till 9.15 p.m. The voyage has been a pleasant one, and all the passengers have arrived in good health. Entertainments of various kinds were introduced, the concerts being under the leadership of Mr Lee, the organist of the Melbourne Town Hall. Excepting that Mr Wills is now third officer, and Mr McRay fourth officer, and Dr Hannah surgeon, the personnel of the officers is unchanged. The Aorangi left Plymouth on 30th July. She will Friday for Auckland. We have to thank Mr Kane, purser, for files and report.
