I am very interested in the Blonde, because a family I am researching
Early/Earley)came to Canada in 1843 or 1844 on the Blonde. I have found a
number of entries in the Quebec Morning Gazette for arrivals and departures
of the Blonde at Quebec in 1843-1844, but there are none in 1845.
I would appreciate any more information on the Blonde or her passengers in
