Ship Amity from Cork Ireland to Quebec

Medical and surgical journal of the Amity Emigrant Ship 5 April to 9 July 1825 by James McTernan, Surgeon and Superintendent, during which time the said transport was employed in conveying Irish Emigrants from Cork to Upper Canada.

Surgeon's Notes: "the class of Irish which comes under notice for emigration is known to subsist upon the lowest species of provisions" and the change to abundant and varied supply combined with the change from constant hard labour to comparative idleness affects them. Surgeon suggests simplifying the diet. The vaccine matter supplied was ineffectual, as was the case with vaccine matter supplied to a convict ship that the Surgeon served on.

Lorine's Notes
