Queenstown, April 20, 1890.President George Teasdale:
Dear Brother,--We arrived here at 8:45 this morning all well. There are fifty-two Saints on board, including nine returning elders, besides about 550 other passengers, making about 602 in all. Our organization has been completed and all seem to be enjoying themselves. Little seasickness has been experienced so far. The hours appointed for prayer are 9:30 a.m. and 8 p.m., when some of the elders meet with the steerage passengers and others with the intermediate. A pleasant hour was spent last evening in singing the songs of Zion in which many of the passengers joined heartily.
The officers of the ship are very courteous. The captain has kindly offered us the privilege of holding service on deck this afternoon, and we intend to accept it. We expect to leave here about 12:30 p.m.
With love to all at "42." [42 Islington WAS THE ADDRESS OF THE BRITISH MISSION IN LIVERPOOL] We remain your brethren,
