This is interesting adlington. I enjoyed William Davies letter. Poor fellow, he was quite restrained in his letter, but you can read in it his frustration with it all. It must have been terrible trying to cope with so many sick. Leaking roof, no bath and a walk to the toilet.

Thanks janilye
Until I found William Adlington in the list above I was struggling to find my family in early NZ and the information it gave me it lead me to much more. So I thought it might do the same for someone else.
And draw attention to the site in general as I'm sure other people can make break through's with information it contains.
Plus of course the interesting insight it can give into colonial New Zealand.
