Further into my ship letters I have this one in my possession after the fatal disappearance of the RMS europa business.. It will turn up when least expected?! In the meantime this piece is now pride of place.
Persia was a British passenger liner operated by the Cunard Line that won the Blue Riband in 1856 for the fastest westbound transatlantic voyage. She was the first Atlantic record breaker constructed of iron and was the largest ship in the world at the time of her launch.
I am yet to open aforementioned letter..
