Caledonian Mercury, 15/1/1842:
"We witnessed on Wednesday departure on her first trip to London of London & Edinburgh Shipping Co.'s beautiful clipper schooner Non-Such. The interest excited by this vessel and her consort Rapid has been very great and on this occasion the pier was crowded to excess. The superiority of this new class of shipping cannot easily be conceived".
