The above named emigrant ship sailed from London October 1, from Plymouth October 14, and arrived at the outer anchorage of Port Adelaide on Monday morning, February 1. The Surgeon-Superintendent reported that eleven deaths (three from scarlet fever) and three births had occurred during the voyage, and the Assistant Health Officer placed the ship under quarantine until he had communicated the particulars to Dr.Duncan.... In consequence of the Stamboul's draught of water it is not likely she will cross the bar for a few days. Register 2/2/1858
to the editor of the register
Dear Sir - I shall feel much obliged by your rectifying a mistake made in your Tuesday's Register respecting the sickness on board the ship Stamboul. There have been no deaths on board caused by scarlet fever, those thus reported were the result of common fever, and they occurred between the latitudes 25° N., and 20° S. Also, the Stamboul, sailed from Plymouth on the 24th of October, and not on the 10th, making the passage in 100 days.
I am, Sir &c.,
Henry Richards, Surgeon-Superintendent, Stamboul,
Tuesday evening. Feb.2
