Details: In the beginning of 1817, among the numerous voyages of survey and discovery upon which a part of the navy of Great Britain was so honorably and so usefully employed, the unexplored coasts of Australia were not forgotten. An expedition for the purpose of completing the survey of its north and north-west coast was planned, under the joint direction of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty and the Secretary of State for the Colonies, to the command of which Lieutenant King had the honor of being appointed. The arrangements for providing him with a vessel and crew were made by the latter department. On the 5th February., Lieut. King received his appointment, together with an order for a passage in the hired transport 'Dick', then about the convey H.M. 48th regiment from Cork to New South Wales, where she arrived on the 3rd September, after a passage from Ireland of 22 weeks, including a fortnight spent at Rio de Janeiro. The vessel appropriated to Lieut. King's use was the Mermaid, a cutter of 84 tons burden, built of teak, and not quite twelve months old; her length was 56 feet; breadth of beam 18 feet 6 inches; and she did not, when deep laden, draw more than 9 feet; the total number of her officers and crew was only eighteen, viz Lieut. King, commander; Messrs Frederick Bedwell and John Septimus Roe, master's mates, both of whom had accompanied him from England; Mr. Allan Cunningham, botanical collector; twelve seamen, and two boys. In addition to this establishment, Lieutenant King accepted the proffered services of Boongaree, a Port Jackson native, who had formerly accompanied Captain Flinders in the 'Investigator' and also on a previous occasion in the Norfolk schooner - Royal Naval Biography; Or, Memoirs of the Services of All the Flag-officers by John Marshall
