Re: [TSL] Great Britain - 1864

Shirley,

The Great Britain is reported "Off The Port" in the Ship News for  
Liverpool, April 5. Then, in the April 7, paper is this:

Australia.
Liverpool, April 6.
The screw Steamship Great Britain, Gray, commander, arrived here this  
morning from Melbourne with dates to the 27th of January, 424  
passengers, and 63,000 ounces of gold dust on freight.

Don't see anything else about her.

Regards..

Marj
