[White Star's First Sailing from Southampton]

New York Times

SOUTHAMPTON, June 5---The White Star Line steamer Adriatic, which sailed
from here at about 1 o'clock this afternoon for New York on her first
Western trip from Southampton, was given an enthusiastic send-off, many
craft crowded with sightseers accompanying her down Southampton Water.
She took 750 emigrants who were stranded at French ports owing to the
strike of seamen in France.

[Note: Although not stated in this article, Adriatic's commander was E.J. Smith.]
