p.2 Departure of the Prince of Wales - "...The steamer had been specially fitted for his accommodation. The berths had been taken out of the staterooms, and a comfortable bed placed in each. She has been thoroughly overhauled and in addition to other ornaments a beautiful Prince of Wales' feather has been painted on each paddle-box, fresh carpets and furniture of all kinds have been supplied, and the sailors are all dressed in uniforms similar to that of the Royal Navy....The steamer Kingston returned half an hour after her departure, having left the provisions behind. Having got them on board she again started."

-Imports - 22-24.
