ship South Sea
Arrived from Plymouth on the 30th July, with 335 emigrants. She was commanded by Mr. George Geere, and Mr. James T. Fraser was the Surgeon-Superintendent. Three births and four deaths occurred before disembarkation. This ship had a cargo of iron, which strained the vessel and caused leakage, which produced dampness between decks. There were 124 single women by this ship, the majority of whom are not likely to find ready employment in this Colony. The discipline and management of the ship reflected credit on all in charge.
