The Cashmere, a ship of 640 tons, brought many of our early settlers to the Dominion. She made five voyages to Auckland, two to Lyttelton, and one each to nelson and Dunedin. The Cashmere had more comfortable accomodation for passengers than many other vessels coming out in the 'fifties, and many of our pioneers selected this ship when making a trip to the Homeland. The Cashmere was well found and generally had favourable runs out and home.
