The newly-arrived expressed their entire satisfaction with the quality and quantity of the provisions, and the water
(which was filtered before being taken on board) was good all the way. On arrival and after the muster had taken place,
the emigrants gave three cheers for Doctor Gordon. The proposer of the cheer designated Dr Gordon
"the conservator of health and the lover of peace". Three cheers followed for the ship.
