ARRIVAL OF THE JUBILEE
Evening Post Saturday June 21st 1873
The ship Jubilee, from London direct, arrived in harbour this morning, after a fair passage of 98 days from pilot to pilot. The Jubilee brings Captain Fergusson, brother and ADC to his excellency the Governor, with Mrs Fergusson and servant; also 47 steerage passengers, mostly Government immigrants. All look particularly well, strong and healthy, and certainly no finer lot of immigrants has yet been landed here. Dr Purdon is the officer in charge. One birth and one death occurred during the voyage, which was a very pleasant one. The Jubilee spoke the Excelsior, bound for Nelson, both north and south of the Equator, and as the latter vessel also arrived in Nelson to-day, the run has been a singularly close one. The Jubilee is consigned to Messrs Turnbull and Co.
