ARRIVAL OF AMELIA THOMPSON
New Zealand Gazette and Wellington Spectator August 7th 1841

The Amelia Thompson, Captain Dawson, arrived on Sunday last from Plymouth, which she left on the 25th of March. She has one hundred and sixty persons in the steerage, and tewnty-two in the cabin. She is one of the Plymouth Company's vessels, and proceeds imediately to her destination. She was to be followed in a few days by the Regina, loaded with stores for the same settlement. Captain King, R.N., the Plymouth Company's Principal Agent, is among the passengers in the Amelia Thompson.

Previously to sailing, the passengers of the Amelia Thompson were entertained at a public dinner, the proceeding at which we have been kindly furnished by Mr Wallace*, but have not space to give them insertion this week.

NB: *If we find them we will publish them.
