Aboard the “Forth” sailing to England

18th June 1831

Sometime around 18th June 1831 Allan Cunningham was aboard the “Forth” sailing to England. A brig, “Three Sisters”, outward bound from Bahia crossed their path. The ship had sailed from Bahia to Guernsey, laden with sugar. From her captain and one of her passengers, who were invited on board, they received a long account of the revolution that had taken place in Brazil, and of the abdication of Don Pedro. ((Read more about Don Pedro 1 of Brazil at Wikipedia)) ((Source: Robert Heward’s Biographical Sketch of Allan Cunningham))
