Star of India to South Australia. 1879

Journal by janilye

The Star of India left London on January 25, 1879 and on reaching Plymouth embarked 309 souls,
under the superintendence of Dr. Mitcheson, with Miss Davison as matron.
The voyage has been accomplished in 101 days, during which time the people have behaved extremely well.
There was no outbreak of any serious character beyond the appearance of scarlet fever, which
was judiciously treated by the doctor, and only extended to the seventh case. One was fatal,
but all the others were convalescent two months before the vessel's arrival.
As usual in cases where sickness has existed, the Health Officer, Dr. Gething, visited the vessel on Monday, and
being satisfied as to her sanitary state awarded a clean bill of health. Early on Tuesday morning
the people were mustered by the Immigration Agent and the vessel towed into harbor.
She has about the usual number of immigrants on board.
On nearing the end of the voyage testimonials were presented to Captain Roe and the doctor expressive of the good feeling which had prevailed.
The following is a list of the passengers, with
their nationalities and occupations.
