Voyage of the Wanganui - 1883

Sources: These items were collected years before I took an interest in recording sources. However, the passenger list is copied from a photocopy of the original that doubtless is held at National Archives, Wellington, NZ. The description of the voyage below, which needs verification, looks like it would have derived from either somewhere in the two-volume set of Henry Brett's 'White Wings', in a newspaper of the day, or in an immigrant ship index at an institution such as National Archives or Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington.
