EARLY WELLINGTON SHIPPING ARRIVALS
from newspapers of the day

ARAB
New Zealand Gazette & Wellington Spectator
Wednesday October 20th 1841

Oct 16th; ship Arab, 484 tons, Captain Sumner, from London; Passengers Messrs Wilkinson, G W Blathwayt, H Martineau, W S Butler, F Woods, F Simon and 200 steerage.

The Arab left London on the 1st June, but she lost her topmasts and bowsprit in the Channel, which made it necessary for her to put into Dartmouth, from which she did not depart until the 15th June; and Captain Sumner has kindly furnished us with London papers to the 11th June.

The emigrants by the Arab have voted Dr Butler, the surgeon of the ship, a letter of thanks, for his humane conduct towards them during their passage from England to Port Nicholson. It was signed by the whole of the passengers.
