Sorry to intrude here, but I was looking for anything on the Fantee in the EDs file and this was the only one that came up so I hope you will bear with me.

Initially I was interested in the story of Mary Slessor the missionary and was in theDundee. Library this afternoon, where they have a collection of her letters, What drew my attention was one for October 1907, which was written from the Fantee.

I knew of a vessel called the Fantee which they told me when I joined EDs of one of their vessels of that name that was lost offLands End, just before the war? When she attempted a very silly thing of trying to pass between Lands End and the Scilly Islands. I thought I might find verification of the story on here. Can anybody help.

Incidentally the history of Mary Slessor is a brilliant read and I would welcome any contributions on here.
