Surgeon's general remarks. The journey was only 5 weeks but with a lot of rain and fog. Many of the children were very weakly on embarking, undernourished and having just recovered from sickness. The change of diet produced some severe bowel complaints, 4 were fatal. The Surgeon comments that it was difficult to get the parents to pay proper attention to them.

As much attention as possible was paid to cleanliness and ventilation but the emigrants 'were extremely indolent and dirty'. There were more than 700 people on board. . The journey to Prescott from Lachine was hard with head winds and rapids, with hot days and rainy nights.

There were three births on the voyage but from their 'extreme poverty and indolence' the families had no clothes for the babies. The Surgeon supplied them with 'calico, flannel and some old linen for that purpose'.
