Further comments

Her birthplace, Bomst, was in Germany, now appears to be in Poland and is called Babimost.
Her husband is in the "Hospital for the insane in Freemantle" and has been there for 18 months.
Cannot read surname of the Referee - his first name is Andrew.
Letters attached concerning her husband's nationality (born in Russia to German parents), and finally a letter from her to say that her husband has died of paralysis on 2nd August 1904.
Her ship the Kaiser Wilhelm II was built in 1889 at Stettin by A.G. Vulcan and spent the first year sailing between Bremen, Southampton, and New York, so it seems likely that Johanna actually sailed to Australia in 1890, when the did sail to Australia (see Norway-Heritage Hands Across the Sea website).
