Advert for ship to New Zealand in 1851

I bought this cover on eBay last week. On one side, there is this advert for a ship sailing to New Zealand while the other side is addressed to a merchant in Glasgow and is franked with a 1d red. The date is February 1851.


Does anyone have any similar adverts of sailings to New Zealand? In those days, letters were often carried by ship captains and I was wondering if there were any examples of letters carried on this voyage.

My website: "New Zealand Stamp Images" describes New Zealand philately, postage stamps, airmails and postal history.
