On the 18th March 1867 after a long illness, Mr. Henderson's wife, Catherine, died at age 56. During her time in Auckland she had helped run the hotel, brought up her family and given to the poor and needy. Thomas was so upset at this loss that he decided to leave for California aboard one of his vessels and leave the firms running in the hands of his partners. He intended to go on to England and Scotland to visit family and friends after a suitable rest. News reached him while in California that Thomas Macfarlane had decided to leave the firm and take up a government post. He decided to abandon his trip and return to Auckland to take control of the firm again. He sold off the ships 'CONSTANCE', 'KATE' and 'NEVA' and bought the 500 ton steamship 'LORD ASHLEY', 'AIRDALE' and 'HAVERSHAM' in a bid to compete with the ever growing demand of trade due to steam versus the slow turnaround of sail.
