William Trindle age 12 months. Child to one of the Convicts, Taken ill at Sea July 14th 1823

“A very delicate and unhealthy child, his mother also in a very bad state of health, and has very little milk. He has been afflicted with Diarrhoea for some time past – which was at first attended with vomiting, it has been two or three times relieved by small doses of Rhubarb. Mist. Cretæ and occasionally a grain or two of Calomel, but they appear to have lost their good effect, as the Diarrhoea continues altho’ he takes them frequently. He is much emaciated, will take no kind of Food, starts in his sleep, is now much convulsed, his skin is sometimes very hot, p: extremely small quick and feeble, abdomen slightly tumefied but he does not shrink from pressure; evacuations of a light green colour, small but not very fluid – nor very frequent, and his very fretful at times. The warm bath has been used occasionally and a Flanner roller was applied at the commencement of the Complaint.”

This poor little child’s illness, suffering and treatment, is described in detail up to his death:

Died July 26th 1823. He continued to pass a considerable quantity of pus pleno, the emaciation is so great he has the appearance of a skeleton, has not slept the last 30 hours. P. so very feeble it cannot be felt, he rolls his Head incessantly on the pillow but is so very weak he cannot cry. He sank rapidly and expired at 3 P.M.
