Re: [TSL] Quebc City - Moville, Irleand arrival 1887 Aug 19
<marj@uwaterloo.ca> on 02/05/2017

 From the Globe and Mail there is an ad for the sailing of the Allan  
Line steamer Circassian. It was to sail on Aug 11. I also checked the  
London Times and in the Aug 22, 1887 paper is a note about it's  
arrival at Moville on Aug 21. If the weather was really bad that would  
account for the delay.

There were no other arrivals noted in the Times that would fit your dates.
