At the penal settlement at Newcastle Lieutenant Purcell was in conflict with Richard Horner who was employed as acting assistant surgeon at 3/- per diem. Medicines and surgical instruments were to be sent to Mr. Horner by principal Surgeon Mr. Wentworth in late April and later one of the better behaved women of the settlement was to be chosen to assist at the hospital. However Horner was dissatisfied and in July he wrote to Purcell requesting his successor be appointed, giving as his reason that 3/- per day was insufficient to support his family of four but also complaining that he was inconvenienced by his government man being taken for the King’s works. Horner was later to cause even more difficulties for Purcell.
