Journey Notes

via Dover (3 Nov) The Adolph is one of the Goddefroy Line of Hamburg passenger vessels which for many years have periodically added to the population of the colony by well-selected batches of immigrants, and on the present voyage she left with 49 and arrived with 50 souls on board, having one birth and no deaths recorded in the journal. She left Hamburg on October 13, but had barely crossed the North Sea before a terrific gale set in, and for several days the brig lay at anchor in the downs till it moderated. From the time of leaving till crossing the Line 30 days elapsed, and after rounding the Cape of Good Hope a fine run across the Southern Ocean was made in 50°S., passing within sight of Prince Edward's Island, but on nearing the Australian land the usual local winds prevented a quick termination to the voyage, and for several days she lay becalmed when to the westward of Kangaroo Island. She is a neat brig, with a full cargo in the hold, and in it are some singular consignments, particulars of which are elsewhere. Register 21/2/1866
