South Australian Register Saturday 6th January 1849 p. 2
THE 'WILLIAM MONEY,' EMIGRANT SHIP, FROM ENGLAND.
This long expected arrival, with an increase of 387 souls to our population, took place on Wednesday after our paper had gone to press. The William Money left Plymouth on the 19th September. Some of the passengers were attacked with fever and dysentry on the voyage, but happily the deaths were few, every care and humane attention being exercised by the Captain or Surgeon-Superintendent, who are spoken of in the highest terms by the emigrants. There is but one cabin passenger on board the William Money, besides the Surgeon Superintendent, who was surgeon-superintendent of the Trafalgar, emigrant ship, to this colony last voyage, and of whose conduct we then made honourable mention. Besides the William Money, there are four emigrant ships now on the passage, besides several cargo ships, and the steam tug.

... letter from Arthur C. Kemball, surgeon-superintendent William Money to the Colonial Secretary, 3rd Jan. 1849
" Sir: I have the honor to report to you the arrival of the Ship William Money - 105 days from Plymouth - with Emigrants under my charge, & send you a return of the numbers embarked, as also of the births and deaths on the voyage - at the same time I forward you my journal, which under peculiar circumstances I deem it advisable at once to put you in possession of - and beg the favor of your acknowledgement of the same, and of the packet accompanying it - It becomes my painful duty to inform you of events which have occurred to tender the latter period of the voyage particularly distressing. "On the 21st ultimo Sarah, wife of William Rayner died from the effects of chloride of zinc, administered to her in error by the matron - further details of this lamentable case will be found in my journal and the documents I send you - The occurrence has been the most painful to me, the family of the deceased having on various occasions given me much displeasure, and been a source of disturbance on board. I shall be ready to put you in possession of additional facts, required..." [GRG 24/6/1849/14]
 
An enquiry into the cause of the death of Sarah Rayner held on board the ship William Money
" ... Sarah Mountstephens stated that she has been acting as Matron during the present voyage - has been in the constant habit of giving medicines to the sick, and to the deceased, also to Mrs Lanyon and others - On Thursday the 21st at about 12 Noon she did do - the deceased took her mixture but Mrs Lanyon did not as she was at dinner - About 10 `clock the doctor came to her and asked whether she had given deceased the same medicine as usual, said she had done so, went to deceased who appeared to be very ill - The doctor then sent her to Mrs Lanyon to see whether she had taken her medicine found she had not taken it upon the Doctor examining it found that it was Chloride of Zinc instead Quinine and Gentian - Has been in the habit of keeping the medicine in partitions on the lockers in the hospital and took a bottle from the same place of the same shape and appearance as the one containing deceased and from that bottle gave the mixture immediately the Doctor sent her with an euretic which she gave deceased and the Doctor continued to pay every attention to deceased - The deceased health was generally very weak but did not think her dangerously ill. The doctor has always paid deceased very great attention during her illness..." [GRG 24/6/1849/115]
 
... letter from William Rayner to Sir Henry E.F. Young, 14 th January 1849
" Sir: As a British subject I am induced to address myself to your Excellency as Governor of the Colony begging your attention to the enclosed statement and taking such steps that you may deem necessary for a stout investigation into the unfortunate circumstances. I have but just come on shore from the William Money in which ship I said sailed from England with my Wife and 5 Daughters. During which voyage my Wife unfortunately lost her Life from Poison being administered instead of Medicine on Thursday December 21st. The next day Captain Buckley sent for me into his Cabin to inform me he intended to institute an enquiry into the melancholy occurance. But as it was merely a preliminary step to a future investigation when we arrived at Adelaide he had sent for me to beg I would not enter into any subject but the immediate cause of deceased's death nor enter into any remark, or complaints of her general treatment as I should have every opportunity of doing so on shore. I promised him I would not if the Doctor kept within the same bounds. Upon my leaving the Captain to return through the Cuddy to my surprise I found about 18 or 20 persons there assembled during my absence. I not having received the least intimation that the proceedings were to be so prompt. During such enquiry it appearing to me that Doctor Kemball was going beyond the rule said down by Captain Buckley. I requested the attendance of 2 or 3 of my witnesses' in the interim of their arrival Captain Buckley said I was breaking the promise made to him in his Cabin that I would not enter into the subject any further..." [GRG 24/6/1849/115]
 
"... Again Doctor Kemball wishes to make it appear that the deceased was in a shatter'd broken state of health stating that the Poison accelerated her death thereby implying that she was in a dying state previous which assertion I most emphatically deny and intend proving by evidence. That she suffered from Sea Sickness and its attendant debility cannot be unusual having for the first time in her life been on board a Ship but not more so if so much as some their who were on board but from that the Doctor admits himself she was partially recovered. The first cause of her eventual illness which ended unfortunately in her death was the constant irritation of her nervous system, arising from the unjust and constant persecution of her Children on board the Ship. On the 10th November, 3 days after the insulting treatment ourselves and Children had publicly received at the Doctors hands upon the Quarter Deck she became very ill declar'd she could not bear up against such continued persecution and consequent loss of peace of mind repeatedly saying she was sure the Doctor would be the death of her before she reach'd Adelaide. The deceased did not go on deck again until the 10th when she unfortunately caught a slight cold a few days after which the Doctor sent for me saying he had just heard my wife was unwell asking if I had sent for anything for her. I replied I had not, as it was not Medicine but support and a quiet mind she required he said he had no fresh meat on board to give her... ... Sunday the 17th not on deck Monday the 10th much better on deck for several hours Tuesday 19th again on deck for several hours 20th again on deck being much better 21st still improving in the morn and proposing to go on deck after taking a Cup of Coffee which I was upon deck warming during which she took the fatal draught..."
