Life in Early Poverty Bay

Arrival in New Zealand

Arrival in New Zealand.

After a voyage of nearly 130 days the ship arrived at Auckland, where the two, who were bound for Napier, transferred to the steamer Phoebe. The little vessel struck a gale on her way down and could not call in at the Hawke's Bay port, and anchor was not cast until well into Wellington harbor. After a few days there the weather eased, and the Phoebe left for Napier, arriving early in January, 1866.
