"The Somerset Years", by Florence Chuk, page 51 begins a chapter on the Sir Charles Forbes, including a description of the voyage, which only took 97 days. 'There were no cabin passengers on the vessel, so the immigrants could use all decks for exercise, free from the restrictions or the stigma of being steerage passengers'.
