Excerpt from A Narrative of a Visit to the Australian Colonies

Some Black and Wandering Albatrosses were continually soaring around us: and a fl:ock of the beautiful Petrels, called Cape Pigeons, kept close to our stern, generally on the wing, but often swimming, or running on the water after anything cast from the ship. The wind howls, and the sea rages in vain to these birds. They keep on the wing in the fiercest tempests, and swim with ease on the most boisterous waves. It was a trying time for all on board, especially for the poor women and children: into whose quarters the water several times found its way in torrents. The perplexities that some times arose, occasioned some of the soldiers to quarrel and swear, even when the vessel seemed ready to be overwhelmed so inveterate was this evil habit! It was a season of trial both of our faith and patience: but the belief that we were in our right places was sustaining.
