Although many ships making the St. John's-to-Halifax run continued on to New York, it is not certain that the Stephano continued to New York in this case. First of all, nothing in the pages I photo-copied suggests this. Furthermore, on 20 March 1915, the Stephano left St. John's with 250 men in Company D, Newfoundland Regiment, headed for Europe. I would expect that, for a period of time before 20th March, the ship had to be re-fitted to accomodate that many men, making a Halifax to New York continuation less likely. (But maybe Boston??).
Of course, this is only a conjecture at the moment. But I'm suggesting that the Stephano probably never arrived in New York in March, 1915.
