166963 - - William Nicol 1837 1837 - Parbury's Oriental Register
 
  The Emigrant Ship William Nicol—The William Nicol, chartered by Government to convey emigrants from the H ighlands of Scotland to Australia, and which sailed from the Isle of Skye in July last, had reached the Cape in a most distressing condition. It is stated that the ship was much too crowded; the berths illconstructed, being just calculated to hold one person each and no more, and so arranged as neither to admit of the classification of families, nor of the sexes. There was a great want of water-closets, and other necessaries of cleanliness. Many of the children had died, and all the women and children were sickly, from an injudicious selection of food. The women had suffered the more, in consequence of the ship's surgeon not knowing their dialect, and there being no female interpreter. They complained bitterly of not being allowed to go on shore. The Cape residents generously raised a subscription to purchase an adequate supply of articles of food and clothing. The Surgeon recommended that in future a couple of milch-cows should be sent out with emigrant vessels, and that no females having infants, or likely to become pregnant on the voyage, should be taken. The arrangements of emigrant ships are cruelly had, whether under Government or private direction.
