The Evening Post November 21st 1884

The Shaw, Savill & Albion Company's ship Trevelyn, 1042 tons, Captain Roberts, arrived in harbour at 9:30 this morning. She brought six passengers, who have arrived in good health. She sailed from Gravesend on the 3rd August, and crossed the Equator on the 14th September in long 21 deg W; passed the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope on 14th October, sighted and passed the Crozets Islands on the 22nd of the same month, passed the meridian of Cape Leuwin on 5th November, and made Cape Farewell on the 18th, arriving as above. The voyage has been a most trying  one, on account of experiencing almost a continuance of calms and light, contrary winds. She spoke several vessels, but only one bound to or from New Zealand - the Jessie Readman, from Glasgow to Port Chalmers, on 9th September, in lat 6deg N, long 19deg, 26min W. As the Trevalyn has powder on board she anchored in the powder ground. W & G Turnbull & Co are agents for her.
