New Zealand Gazette and Wellington Spectator 10 July 1841
WE, the undersigned Emigrants by the Katherinc Stewart Forbes, are desirous to convey our warmest gratitude to Captain Hobbs for the anxious solicitude evinced by him for our safety, during a tedious and perilous voyage from England to New Zealand. We are the more desirous of testifying our sense of his kindness, because he had in many instances interposed when others in a minor charge attempted to destroy our peace and quiet. We would also add that the discipline and seamanship displayed by Captain Hobbs has entirely secured our respect and admiration.
We also tender our thanks to the chief and second mates, for their united civility and kindness during the voyage.
