"FORTY FIFTH COMPANY. -- Zetland, 250 souls. It was the intention of Apostle Orson Pratt to have chartered a ship to sail about the twentieth of September, 1849, but he was unable to find one that was suitable, until he had succeeded in chartering the large, new and splendid ship Zetland, which had already brought over one company of Saints before. The fare, including the necessary provisions, was Â£3 7 shillings 6 demies for adults; for children under fourteen years, Â£2 10 shillings; infants under twelve months, free.
The Zetland sailed from Liverpool, November 10th, 1849, with about two hundred and fifty Saints on board, under the presidency of Elder Samuel H. Hawkins, and arrived at New Orleans, December 24th, 1849, with about two hundred and fifty Saints on board, under the presidency of Elder Samuel H. Hawkins, and arrived at New Orleans, December 24th, 1849, all the emigrants enjoying good health and spirits; they were received by the church agent, Elder Thomas McKenzie, who arranged transportation with a number of the emigrants to St. Louis, while others tried to get employment in New Orleans, in order to earn means wherewith to continue the journey. At that time, however, business was very dull in New Orleans, and thousands of able-bodied men were walking about in idleness. The weather was also very warm and sickly.
The part of the company which continued the journey up the river, arrived at St. Louis, Missouri, January 11th, 1850. (Millennial Star, Vol. XI, pages 315, 361;Vol. XI
I, pages 43, 75.)"
