Ellen Hargarave, age 32, became ill at sea on June 20 1823.
“Has been very Sea Sick the last week, a few days ago her menses appeared and have been to excess since yesterday morning, the Sickness at Stomach continues and she throws up a great quantity of vitiated bile, of a very dark colour, the alvine evacuations are of the same appearance and she seems much debilitated. T: white, p: rather quicker than natural, much thirst, no appetite. S: above the natural temperature. She took two or three doses of Tinct. Ferri Mur. and Laudanum yesterday which abated the flood of the Catamenia and little comes away today unless when she vomits, which is however frequent. She also complains very much of pain in her Stomach and Bowels, she has frequent calls to stool, but they are scanty. “
The report of her illness and treatment is very detailed, until the end of the journey:
“2 PM, Sent to Hospital at Sydney, New South Wales, October 20th 1823.”
