Reid, John (?–1904)

A Herald correspondent writes: Another old hand has joined the grey shades. Captain John Reid, ancient West Coast mariner, and first man to enter Trial Harbor, put off for the unknown shore at Sydney a few days ago. In the wild, clamorous and brimstone days of the West, Captain Reid commanded the Wakefield, the Amy and such craft, and to this day folk abide to tell of the "old salt's"' many genial traits of character.
