OZSHIPS Arrivals overlooked EUTERPE voyages, to date
Have just finished passing information to [email protected] telling them I'm shocked! shocked, I tell you! that they at the OZSHIPS page hadn't yet gotten any inputs from anyone about the eleven voyages EUTERPE made to Australian ports, on at least 5 of which there were settlers embarked. To top that, my efforts to fix the oversight will have to wait until the correct email address get to the webmasters of OZSHIPS: I just got my email to them kicked back!
If one day I succeed, I wish I could have given them the dates of arrival, but all I have at the moment is my upgraded Jerry MacMullen "Log of an Iron Ship" appendix data, which amounts to the following:
[note: Journal page software seems to want to squash any matrix (i.e., columnar) separations into tight sentences. How regrettable. I suppose this has all been a pointless exercise; there's no clear link to a standard communication mechanism, such as a simple email fomat.]
DEPARTURE PORT -- DATE DEPARTURE -- AUSTRALIAN DESTINATION
London Dec 4, 1872 Melbourne (May & June 1872)
London & Plymouth Oct. 9, 1882 Sydney & Newcastle Sydney (arrived Sydney Feb. 6, 1883)
London July 9, 1885 Auckland
London Aug. 20, 1886 Auckland
London Oct. 3, 1887 Melbourne
Hamburg May 21, 1890 Melbourne
Glasgow Dec. 2, 1893 Auckland
Glasgow Nov. 25, 1897 Newcastle
The rest of the voyages were in the lumber trade, with side trips to Newcastle. I hope this doesn't fall into some bottomless pit, like some of the data I forwarded recently about Dr. William R. Davies.
