Mary Parsons Ætatis 30 Woolwich May 13th 1823 .
Embarked this afternoon after a painful journey from Worcester, in a weakly & sickly looking state, having fainted on coming on board, and would have been immediately sent back in charge of the officer who brought her on board, but the weather was wet, and she so fatigued and exhausted from the journey it would have endangered her life, consequently she was kept on board until advice should be obtained from the Secretary of State’s office. She complained of pain in her chest, cough, and difficult respiration; said she had been unwell upwards of three months; she took some medicines at the commencement of the complaint, but more lately she is considerably emaciated and appears hectic. p. quick & very small. B. rather confined. She took a carminative Draught when Syncope took place on coming on board.
The surgeon continued to treat her until….
Sent to the Hospital ship Alongo at Woolwich- 2 p.m. on 5th June 1823 by order of Mr Capper, Secretary of State’s Office.
