Surgeons Report - Convict Transport Eliza
We sailed from Cork on the 10th of May 1832 with a light and favourable breeze. The weather continuing fine for ten days all hands soon became accustomed to their new residences without suffering much from sea-sickness which might have been expected as most of the party had never seen the sea before.
Every possible care was taken to keep the prisoners on deck as much as the nature of the service would admit, the prisons, and hospital, clean, and well ventilated, the bedding frequently aired, well shaken, neatly folded and returned to their proper berths.
The greatest regularity was observed to their meals being properly cooked and served. Each man in numerical order one at a time passed through the barricade on one side of the deck and passed out of the other, by which means I had an opportunity of observing every man distinctly. Examining his cloths, shoes etc, and which put a total stop to anything like traffic for wine or lime juice, which is too often the case in convict ships.
The majority of entrys on the sick lists were those of constipation, phlegmonous, tumours and slightly lacerated lets, all of which soon got well with care. The protracted case of Epilepsy occurred in a man of the name of John Harigan (No of case 6) attended with great determination to the head, he could not articulate for two days. Depletion was carried to the greatest extent from the and both arteries, head blistered LC, he had a slow but perfect recovery.
The thermometer seldom exceeded 86 in the prisons which was much lower than what have might been expected, but owing to the windsails been constantly well trimmed and the side scuttles opened when the weather wuld admit. The greatest degree of personal cleanliness was observed throughout the voyage. The prisoners were shaved three times a week and their hair kept close cut.
The bathing tub was made use of every morning, one half of the prisoners bathed every alternate morning, two men were appointed to wash, with pipe-clay and a brush, the person in the bath, which they stood much in need of, and which I invariable.....in............., and by which means I detected eleven cases of psora and three cases of pediculus pubis, more than sufficient to stock all New Holland.
I regret to mention the death of two of the prisoners, one from Ascites, the other from tubercular consumption, their cases and post mortem examinations will show the little chance either would have had even in their native air.
A few cases of scurvy occurred which got all well prior to debarcation, from a free use of lemon juice and preserved meats. For three weeks before making Kings Island we had a continuation of boisterous weather, when coughs, colds and rheumatism were the prevailing complaints. Five cases of dysentery occurred among the Guard, no doubt caused by exposure to wet and heavy dews during their sentry, all of which recovered before landing.
In conclusion I am happy to remark that the greatest unanimity prevailed amongst all the officers throughout the voyage, most of the prisoners behaved remarkable well, and I have much pleasure in stating that, the Secretary, the Hon.ble Mr McClea complemented me on the good order in which all the prisoners appeared before him.

Sydney Gazette 15 September 1832
The prisoners by the Eliza are expected ashore this morning. They are all Patlanders to a man; and if they can dandle the flail as well as the shellelagh, well prove an acquisition to our farmers.
