Adamant: Surgeon’s Log: National Archives ADM 101/1/2/2 1821
Folio 1: 19th March 1821; received eighty convicts from the Justitia, No sick.
Folio 23: 28th May 1821; I have to remark within this last week some of the convicts have complained of slight scorbutic affection, on making examination I find their gums to be rather spongy and inclined to bleed. I have paid particular attention to see that every man gets his allowance of lime juice and sugar. There is none of them to be on the sick list. Put Robert Evans in irons for fighting and making a disturbance in the prison.
