Richard Haydon: Shipboard Diary to New Zealand, 1883 - #19

Landing Emigrants at Lyttelton, Illustrated Australian News 1870s

20 October

Still very calm ship sailing very slow the white hills still in sight.

21 October

We arrived off port Lyttelton about 1 Oclock this morning where we had to lay too until daylight when we signaled for a pilot to come on board then we droped the Anchors and waited for the tug to take us up to Lyttleton where we arrived about 12 Oclock.
