Profiles

Sailed from Plymouth, Oct 12th, 1852. Arrived at Port Cooper, February 2nd, 1853 on her 113th day, a few calms which slowed her down otherwise the voyage was uneventful. Among the passengers in the Minerva is Mr E. G. Wakefield, who has at length realized his long cherished project, and arrived in New Zealand with the intention of becoming a colonist. Mr Sewell us also a passenger, and has come, it is said, on business connected with the Canterbury Association.

(From the Lyttelton Times) The "Minerva" entered our harbour, on Wednesday afternoon (Feb. 2), after a fair average passage of 112 days from England. She left London on the 12th October, and has had a very agreeably passage, fair weather prevailing throughout. She brings a large number of cabin and intermediate passengers, mostly all for this settlement.
