Re: [TSL] HEBER - UK > AUS - 1837

Thanks Marj.
Sounds like those articles may be for a different ship, as during those
time periods, the one I am looking for was definitely en route to
Australia, and she didn't go via Canada.
I'd thought I'd seen reference somewhere to another vessel also named Heber
travelling around that same time to Canada, but I can't find that info now.

Thanks
Kathy
