From the ship’s medical journal, Surgeon William C, Watts:
The last case which terminated fatally was one of dyspepsia (Eleanor Patterson died on 29th March), the subject a woman who had attained the advanced age of 58 in the commission of crimes of every description, she having been what is termed in slang language a fence woman and whose constitution was completely destroyed by her mode of life the same reasons which I have stated in the former case prevented my instituting a post mortem examination.
