Ship: 898 tons
Captain: Beattie
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed London September 29th 1877 - arrived Hawke's Bay 4th January 1878
The vessel was placed in quarantine on account of scarlet fever having broken out. Later she proceeded to Wellington arriving there
on February 13th.
The Pilot KRAEFT took off another boat load of fresh provisions to the quarantined ship Renfrewshire on Saturday afternoon, and placed
them on a platform lowered for the occasion. The Pilot KRAEFT informedour reporter that there were no fresh cases of sickness on board, and it is most likely that when the Commissioners go out this morning in the Fairy the ship will be allowed a clean bill of health. Signals were exchanged on Saturday between the Immigration Officer and the ship; the ship, in answer to the question regarding the health of the immigrants, signalled "all well." The Renfreshire has got 900 tons of cargo on board, 300 for Napier, and 600 for Wellington, where she will proceed on her landing theNapier portion.
