A very successful voyage and one which prompted this 'Letter To The Editor' to the Sydney Gazette on the 10 January 1839.


SIR,
Although utter strangers in the colony, we shall feel much obliged to you if you will be so kind as to give the following testimony to Captain Richardson, of the ship Boyne, publicity through the medium of your useful journal. I am, sir, on behalf of all the Emigrants in the ship Boyne, your most obedient humble servant.
Charles M'Gregor.

The Emigrants just arrived from the Highlands of Scotland, by the ship Boyne, deem it a duty incumbent upon them to testify in this public manner their unfeigned gratitude and respect to Captain Richardson, for his kind, affectionate and gentlemanly conduct towards them.
He has, indeed, been as a brother to us all, and a father to the children.
His solicitude in directing all things for our comfort, and his unaffected manners, will not soon be forgotten by us.
The first officer, Mr. Daniel, and all the other Officers, and Seamen, also deserve our sincere thanks for their continued kindness to all the passengers.
The manner in which Mr. Ewen Cameron, the surgeon, has conducted the affairs committed to his charge is beyond all praise. His patience and unremitting attention to the sick could not be exceeded. His attention, also, in enforcing and directing the most salutary regulations
for the health and comfort of all has
proved eminently successful.
The Rev. Colin Stewart, who has acted as Chaplain on board, deserves our lasting gratitude, for he has spared no pains in his endeavours to improve the moral and intellectual capacities of all, particularly the young. His public and private ministrations are highly appre- ciated by all his fellow passengers :-the solemnity of public worship on the Lord's, day has been so congenial to our feelings. that we felt more at home than we other- wise could have done.
Mr. Duncan Cameron, who has acted as Schoolmaster, deserves the thanks and gratitude of all the parents on board, for his careful and unremitting endeavours to instill sound principles and communicate useful knowledge to the young.

Ship Boyne, Jan., 1838.

NOTE: Indeed the letter writer above has mistakenly dated it 1838. Also because a passenger list was never published, my source for the list below was found in the 'Index to Miscellaneous Immigrants'
within the NSW Government State Records.
Acknowledgement to Ann Smith a member of staff at State Records who indexed this series NRS 5313, Persons on Government Ships, Aug 1837-Feb 1840.
There are 107 names on this list.
Wives and Children's names have not been included.
I thought of removing the reel numbers and NRS but this way there can be no mistake when searching. janilye
