Previous Registration: U.S.A. (1852)
Owned by Capt. A. Sleigh, Charlottetown P. E. I. ("New York, Halifax & Quebec Line of Steamships") Made few voyages Quebec-Halifax (first left Quebec 22/07) but service a failure and vessel moved to Gulf of Mexico. Wrecked there 10/04/53. "Long, narrow, high out of the water, exceedingly sharp at the bow, round sterned, rather wall-sided" (Quebec "Chronicle"). Capt. Sleigh seems to have had a dubious reputation and considerable mystery surrounds this.
