 Wee Tottie passenger list, departures, Feb 22 1853
Natal Witness

Several early British settlers to Natal were disappointed with the Colony
and hoped to start a new life in Australia - the goldfields there being
an added incentive. However, some of these emigrants returned to Natal later.

Wee Tottie A 1 at Lloyds: This vessel is now being
fitted up with superior accommodation for Passengers all this being in Enclosed
Cabins; and offers in every respect a most eligible opportunity for parties about to
proceed to Australia. An experienced Surgeon is engaged to
accompany the vessel, and every attention will be paid
to the comfort and requirements of the  passengers.
