in mid 1905.

Her trip was by train >from Kalinkovichi to St. Petersburg and on to Finland; >from

from where they sailed to New York. (They were hidden in a hay wagon to pass
through the city of St. Petersburg to change stations)

and her arrival in New York was aboard a ship that had sailed >from Glasgow.
