James Nicol Fleming
Ship: 1000 tons
Captain: P Logan

Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Glasgow July 7th  1871- arrived Otago October 5th  1871

Built in 1869, the James Nicol Fleming was a composite clipper of close on 1000 tons and was a sister ship to the Otago, built on exactly the same lines. She was an exceedingly fast ship and only twice in her career took more than the average 90 days for the passage from Glasgow to Otago. In 1879, owing to financial problems at the City of Glasgow Bank (which also involved one of the directors after who she was named), her name was changed to Napier.
