SS Montoro took her back to Darwin,  and she arrived there 14th September.  phew, although the newspaper got her name wrong, again.    Burns Philp Shipping co was a significant organisation, and perhaps their telegraphic offices were needed to make sure all the paperwork was sorted in Darwin for the marriage 15th Sept.  :)
