Arabia, 1853-?
According to this document, Arabia was a mail packet ship. It was part of the Cunard Line, as this short article, presented verbatim, from the British Colonist confirms:
Mrs. Putnam, a colored Boston woman, who was badly treated on board the Europa, on the voyage to England, and wrote a letter to Samuel Cunard complaning of it, returned on the Arabia and had every comfort purchased by her passage money.1
Likely, this was the Arabia constructed in 1853, which served as a Crimean War transport.2
